Jack Turner of Jack and Jill Politics went to the Apollo, not to see amateur night, but to check out a rally for Barack Obama with opening act Cornell West and MC Chris Rock. Jack reports a highly diverse, politically charged crowd:
I saw old black women and young white men. I saw young black professionals and old white couples. And yes, there were Asians and Latinos too. The event held in Harlem, but it played host to all of New York. It was beautiful.Will we hear about Dowd's trip uptown to see Obambi in Sunday's column? We can only hope.
In the audience I ran into friends from Yearly Kos and am pretty sure I spotted Maureen Dowd.
