I just read an article about the celebrations planned for this evening by each of the campaigns. No joke, this is what each has planned:
- Obama will address hundreds of thousands of citizens in Chicago's Grant Park, which as I understand it is like their version of Central Park or Golden Gate Park. It's a public place that all classes of people identify with and love. 70,000 regular old people are being picked and notified by email that they'll be up front.
- McCain will be at the Biltmore, a ritzy Phoenix resort that most people in that city have never seen the inside of. It will be filled with 2,000 supporters and 3,000 media people.
If that's not some sort of symbol of the contrast between these two, and the two parties they represent, I don't know what is. Hmmm... I wonder which guy represents me best?
