Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, the Democrats’ nominee for vice president, spoke at Pioneer Courthouse Square Wednesday evening. An audience estimated at about 10,000 people was on hand. The large gathering was among three get out the vote efforts Edwards attended in Oregon that day. The candidate was energetic and upbeat. The crowd was enthusiastic and remarkable in its diversity.

Kids for Kerry. Many families attended the rally.

  • My God that was fascinating. Thank you so, so much for bringing this important and entertaining feature into our lives.

  • I took’em, so I get to post’em.

    Besides, the image of Democrats is under fire at Blogcritics. Just look at the Comments. At least two entries in which relatively peaceful folks are described as thugs and crooks are prominent today. A picture of a baby Democrat is not just a good idea, but necessary under the circumstances.

    baby democrats…a travesty! I would never subject my darling daughters to that!!!

  • It was a record-breakingly warm day, in the ’80s. Not a cloud in the sky . . . or a thug in sight. The baby was in a good place.
