I was glad to see Bernie first address the crowd outside of

Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium that couldn't get inside due to the overflow to see him. Also glad he picked up another endorsement. To the thousands who showed up on short notice, kudos.

7. He does that in freezing weather at end of long days.

I've seen so many clips of him going out to talk to crowds waiting outside of his venues -

he has more class in his little finger than Hillary and Bill put together.

No I take that back. She wouldn't.

6. Obama did that for our overflow crowd in 2008. It's a very classy move.

It shows the candidate does not take us for granted. Even just a few minutes will let people who stood in line for hours get to say they saw the next president.

28. Estimate rounded up from 47 by her campaign handlers? lol

Seriously, those claimed crowd numbers, when provided by her own campaign, and unaccompanied by full crowd pictures (like we see from Bernie's campaign) have proven extremely inflated in the past - that happened when Bill spoke to a fund raiser in Pittsburgh, and those pesky attendees were interviewed by local press. Then you have to discount the number of security/secret service; press; and Clinton campaign workers. She'd be doing good to have 200.

If she really had 600, that would be an all-time record, with the exception of her carefully staged Roosevelt Island announcement to kick off her official race. And there would be a lot of photos put out to show that size of the crowd.

17. A Friend Of Mine Was At A Twin Cities Bernie Rally In MN....

He and his wife were in an overflow room and before Bernie went into the main room to deliver his speech he went into the overflow room to thank all of his supporters for coming out and supporting him.

19. Thats how I got to see Obama and shake his hand in San Antonio in 2008.

We stood outside, in fact we were the very first people (hubbie and I) who were cut off from going inside to the arena.

We were asked to line up in the street. And the crowd kept growing behind us. When we looked backwards, it was a sea of people. We stood there, maybe 15 people abreast. And as far back as the eye could see.

We watched as they erected a little podium and platform, we got wanded by the Secret service and we waited for a time.

Then Obama got up on the little platform and spoke to all the people in the packed street. Then he came down and walked along the front of the crowd and shook as many hands as he could reach.

We shook hands with President Barack Obama. And hubbie got pics as well.

Pretty cool

I can only imagine how the Bernie supporters are feeling right now who are getting to hear him speak, and shake his hands.

So happy for you all.
