Obama Crowd Builds in Germany: Good or Bad?
Barack Obama isn't speaking in Berlin until 1:15 eastern time today but the crowds are already massing. Rumors are that one million people could show up although Obama himself dismissed such suggestions, telling reporters: "I doubt we're gonna have a million screaming Germans."
A huge crowd today could be a mixed blessing for Obama. On the one hand, it is a potent symbol of the excitement his candidacy has caused worldwide. On the other, thousands and thousands of cheering Germans may not play well stateside.
Does a big crowd work to Obama's benefit or detriment? Or somewhere in between?
