Barack Obama's campaign claimed 1,800 people at Des Moines' Hoover High School for a 10pm rally Wednesday night. Obama was horse, but energetic, as he spoke for about half an hour. He made his final pitch to convince the room to caucus for him. "This is our chance," he told them.
More than a few heads on press row were craning to get a glimpse of Scarlett Johansson. They didn't see her. She supposedly came out in the gym, dressed in a gray sweater. But a campaign staffer told me she may have stayed behind the backdrop.
Superman did show himself. The latest Superman, that is. Brandon Routh, who is a Norwalk, Iowa, native talked with the crowd after the event.
A lot of energy in that room.
