Obama Out-Crowds McCain

One hundred thousand amassed under the Gateway Arch -- and beyond -- in St. Louis Saturday for an Obama rally. The crowd broke Obama's personal record (excluding the convention), set last May, of an estimated 72,000 in Portland, Or.

By contrast, McCain today drew a crowd of 7,000 in Concord, North Carolina, just outside Charlotte. Later the same day, he drew 10,000 at a second rally near Woodbridge, Virgina, where McCain vowed he "will never concede defeat."

Meanwhile, McCain's aides were busy trashing the northern Virginia rally site by contrasting it with the "real Virginia" in southern Virginia.
