the choice of venue is a mischievous, aggressive way for Obama to unofficially kick off the general election campaign against Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)What is he doing? Get this (reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribute):
Barack Obama has chosen the site of the GOP national convention in St. Paul to celebrate the likely end of the Democratic presidential primary contest on Tuesday night.Isn't that cool? It's not subtle. That is the very hall in which John McCain will accept the nomination of the Republican Party.
The Illinois senator is scheduled to address a huge rally at the Xcel Energy Center, his campaign announced Friday. "As Minnesotans, we're incredibly excited," said Tina Smith, senior adviser to the Obama campaign in Minnesota.
Boy, this general election is going to be fun. An angressive, nimble, smart Democrat!
