2000 In Orangeburg for Obama

Over 2000 excited locals greeted Barack Obama in Orangeburg, South Carolina yesterday morning, his second campaign rally in that state since announcing his candidacy.

Obama was introduced at the rally by US Representative, James Clyburn. Clyburn will not formally endorse any candidate but apparently interrupted his schedule to make the introduction. He said that Barack Obama was able to run for the nomination "...because Rosa Parks sat down and Septima Clark stood up."

Yesterday afternoon, Obama travelled back to Washington to vote on the Senate Iraq resolution, before heading to Richmond Virgina last night.

As expected, the Governor of Virginia Tim Kaine endorsed Obama yesterday afternoon, at a press conference at the Governor's mansion, saying that Obama is the right candidate. He said that Obama brings excellence that begins with values.
