Despite the posturing and bravado of republican candidate John McCain, I get the feeling that it is a bit terrifying for him to realize that Barack Obama has the ability to galvanize real human support.
It is no small feat to be able to attract crowds of 60,000 people in Michigan and 75,000 in Oregon. If Senator Obama is likened to a rock star what shall we liken John McCain to?
Can John McCain duplicate grassroots support that Senator Obama is able to mobilize?
Most of his recent public speeches have been at events such as the National Rifle Association meeting as opposed to electric public gatherings where he is the main attraction.
I can only wonder if he can create the need in 75,000 people to attend one of his speeches.
We shall see.
