Here's the Gateway Arch and the Old Courthouse building , they were close to where the event was being held:
And this is the (OOF-Out Of Focus) pic of the venue, I took it while jumping down from a fence:
The crowd wrapped around the building where the venue was, and here's the crowd going in:
There were some people who were supporting another candidate:
Capitalism was at its active best as we moved down the queue...here's capitalism with a "t"....
Here's money exchanging hands...
And here are Obama buttons on sale:
Here are the crowds inside the dome:
There were all sorts of people; here's a beautiful young woman and her even more lovely daughter:
And here's one I enjoyed taking, I am sorry to say (I am not sorry about posting this, the young woman was in a public space, sitting like that!)...what an ad for Levi Strauss!
Several officials came and they were fixing up wires all over the place:

Cheerleaders and a band from Harriet Stowe University put up a nice show:

We then went to TGIF, where this waiter was getting ready to join in the Mardi Gras that was on at a different location, with his multicoloured beads:
We returned home at nearly midnight, and I think we would have been better off in front of the TV...but it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
