Arriving as we did around 5, we couldn't get into the restricted area that people had lined up all day to get into. First, we went to Bascom Hill, which was well wired for sound, and there were hundreds of people sitting or standing on the grass:
This photo shows the attitude of the crowd before the speech:
It was nice to see some students studying:
We made our way over to the Union Terrace, about a block away from the live event, to hang in a mellower crowd by the lake. There was good audio and video over here, and some folks had their beer, while others, like me, had Babcock Hall ice cream cones.
These people were relaxed and listening. It was hard to tell what they were thinking. But they didn't chant along with "Yes we can." There were a couple clowns protesting, like this:
"9-11 Frame Up/Inside Job"... idiots.
We got cold and headed home before the speech ended and before the sun set.
ADDED: Some video.
