Obama in Detroit
(2008-06-17)
(wgvu) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama
took the stage at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit to thunderous
applause and chants of "Yes, we can!"
About 10 minutes into his introductory "thank yous," hundreds
or people still stood and cheered the Illinois senator.
Obama urged people in attendance to register to vote and become
volunteers, saying "this is a grass roots political movement that
we're building."
Obama thanked ex-Vice President Al Gore for his continued fight
toward renewable energy. He also praised Michigan Gov. Jennifer
Granholm for "carrying this ship of state through some rocky
times."
