Obama In Jacksonville

A Barack Obama campaign rally in Jacksonville was packed. 10 thousand people packed Metropolitan Park. Another 6 thousand couldn't get in. The Obama grassroots support makes me wonder how Obama will fair in Duval County.

The overflow crowd at Jacksonville's Metropolitan Park -- capacity 13,000 -- ate it up. The energy was notable because though Democrats outnumber Republicans in Duval County, it is a reliable area for the GOP. George Bush got nearly 1 ½ times more votes than John Kerry in 2004. McCain could barely muster 3,000 when he spoke nearby on Monday.

Obama used the rally to talk about his tax cuts. A graph by the Tax Policy Center show that Obama would cut taxes for the middle and lower classes.McCain's two biggest tax cuts are for the top earners.
