Tom I believe you are mistaken in part. There were fellow dems that were friends or people that I knew supported other candidates that I recognized in the crowd. Nothing nefarious from my end. My strongest memory of the day was the few minutes that some of us was able to spend speaking with Senator Kennedy before he spoke, not worries about protesters. I appreciate the dialogue though. Too often comment threads end up in rant filled ditches. Perhaps we can continue it in person.
The rally at the Laborer's Hall was not a MCDC rally just for Presidential candidates. It was a Kerry Rally, rescheduled from the previous week before after Teresa Heinz Kerry and then Kerry himself ended up canceling on a rally in the Gym of MLK school number 9 . They felt bad at the last minute cancellation and wanted to make it up before super tuesday because the Edwards campaign also had strong support in our region and Edwards had done a campaign stop. (Dean had dropped out by this point)
Senator Kennedy and I believe John Kerry's daughter and sister attended to support Kerry. Kennedy was amazing as anybody there remembers. There were rumors of people planning to disrupt the rally. Tom, not letting in supporters of other campaigns, as long as they weren't going to be disruptive, was wrong though. I was the Regional staffer for the Kerry campaign and remember that supporters of other candidates were there, mainly to see Kennedy of course.
