The town meeting in Denver was well organized as

well, except that most here know the difficulty to park
in the area. This may have been the reason for less
than the 7,000 to come. Still, it was a crowd.

The part that impressed me most was how Bernie
handled the crowd. He let them cheer or boo for
a bit, but it took only his raising his hand for people
to sit down and let him continue.

Obviously most of the crowd knew the key words
and started clapping before he had finished his sentences
at some points. All this did not phase him in the least.
Obama has cool, Bernie has a confident calmness.
Very impressive.

1. I forgot to mention

that I was a bit worried to see with so many people
no metal detectors or other security measures. I am
glad that nothing happened, but I think for future
events they might at least hire a few security guards
as a precaution.

3. I've not mentioned it...

But have wondered exactly the same.

2. Bernie has a charisma all his own.

He's not as quirky as Ross Perot but has that pluckiness. One of the elements of his charisma, I think is his selflessness. I think I might have to go back to Shirley Chisolm or Martin Luther King for such a selfless passion for the common good. Almost all candidates suffer from "Potomac fever," but I think he got into the race to really do the right thing. He told Katie Couric in the long interview he is not obsessed with being president. Based on his record, his candor and demeanor I believe it.

A new word to add to the list of descriptions of Bernie,

Plucky.
