A tribute to his shockwave through politics

This past weekend, we all heard of the crowd Barack Obama had. He mustered 20,000 people to come together to listen to him speak in Atlanta. Something we didn't hear is the fact that of those 20,000 people, a lot of them have probably never been to a political event before.
When people signed up for tickets, Obama's campaign screened names and found whether people were registered to vote. If people aren't registered to vote, they have to register before they can come. Half of the people, 10,000, registered to vote.
Just to note, this is nine months before the first primary, and he registered 10,000 people in one event. This guy can bring voters out to turn seats all over the place on a local, state, and federal level unlike any of the other candidates are showing they can. The responses he gets with some events are nothing short of amazing given how early these events are.
