Obama was great today in Pueblo. We waited two hours in the sun but the atmosphere was festive. There were thousands in attendance. Being in the midst of the throng I couldn't estimate the crowd but it was huge. Wes Clark, Ken Salazar, and Michelle Obama set the stage for Obama. We could see him over the crowd about 100 yards in front of us. He gave a 40-minute speech with some new zingers. The best was when he said Cheney has now endorsed McCain. "Dick Cheney said he would be delighted if John McCain were to become president".

President Bush is sitting out the last few days before the election. But earlier today, Dick Cheney came out of his undisclosed location and hit the campaign trail. He said that he is, and I quote, "delighted to support John McCain."

I’d like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement because he really earned it. That endorsement didn’t come easy. Senator McCain had to vote 90 percent of the time with George Bush and Dick Cheney to get it. He served as Washington’s biggest cheerleader for going to war in Iraq, and supports economic policies that are no different from the last eight years. So Senator McCain worked hard to get Dick Cheney’s support.

But here’s my question for you, Colorado: do you think Dick Cheney is delighted to support John McCain because he thinks John McCain’s going to bring change? Do you think John McCain and Dick Cheney have been talking about how to shake things up, and get rid of the lobbyists and the old boys club in Washington?

Another good zinger was when Obama said his kids have a hard time deciding what to be for Halloween. John McCain doesn't have that problem. He can just go as George Bush because they are identical.
