Well, McCain addressed a smaller crowd by a few orders of magnitude. Wasn't it something like 200,000 people at that acceptance speech?Originally posted by: DisgruntledVirus
Yes I know it's a blog, but I couldn't find any non-blog and this was from a real news source (the telegraph).
Was this something that was really needed? Obviously McCain didn't have it, so that means it is just for Obama. Should we expect this to be the norm for his presidency?
And then considering the emotionally charged atmosphere of these campaigns, much less the whole "first black president" thing....I'd say extra precautions were called for.
