This is simply stunning. No matter who you support in this long, contested primary, there is no doubt that the excitement being generated by our two fantastic candidates is exhilarating and bodes well for our chances in November.

Tens of thousands jammed Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland on Sunday to watch Sen. Barack Obama wrap up a busy weekend in Oregon and a historic campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Portland Fire Bureau estimated the crowd at 72,000. About 60,000 squeezed inside the gates, and 12,000 watched from outside.

HuffPo has a nice slideshow of the event.

Wonkette has full coverage of Ralph Nader's record-breaking event this past weekend too. Literally dozens of people showed up to watch him speak.
