On September 27th, 2007, some guy named Barack stood in front of a massive crowd at Washington Square Park in New York City and asked those attending to vote for him rather than the Senator from New York, Hillary Rodham Clinton. From the NYTimes:

Mr. Obama’s aides said more than 20,000 people registered for the event through the campaign’s Web site. While it was impossible to determine even a reliable attendance estimate, view from the vantage point of an elevated lift seemed to reveal the gathering as one of the largest campaign events of the year.

Meanwhile, tonight, a woman named Elizabeth Warren held a rally at Washington Square Park in the exactly same month of the election cycle as did future President Barack Obama and asked those in attendance to vote for her instead of a different New Yorker. A reliable attendance estimate for it is not yet available, either, but I am guessing that Elizabeth Warren drew a capacity crowd.

They were very excited to be there.

Warren gave a big speech and unveiled her anti-corruption plan. It seemed to go over well with the crowd.

It was a pretty good speech, too.

I don’t know, y’all. I’m starting to think this Warren person may have a chance.
