We have seen crowd total disputes loom over a number of prominent political events. The record crowd at the National Mall transpired for the inauguration of President Obama.
Somehow, I think if he is re-elected in 2012, he won't be met with the same fanfare.
That being said, the crowd at the "Restoring Honor" rally wasn't a crowd with a motive to the right or left. The crowd simply wanted to bring back common sense to the realm of politics, both on the right and left.
With a few days left until the 2010 mid-terms, I have a feeling that the Rally to restore Sanity crowd was smaller than it would have been had it been held after the elections or a couple of weeks ago. Still yet, Jon Stewart's rally was admired by many, and is arguably the best political rally of the season.
