He’s proud to be an American — aren’t you?

This wide-angle shot (and I urge you to click and see it full-size) gives you a partial idea of how big the crowd was. The crowd wrapped around on both sides and behind the camera riser from which the photo was taken.

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman is interviewed by a TV crew after the rally.

Romney adviser Kevin Madden answers questions during an informal press “gaggle” after the rally.

A button vendor displays his wares after the event. I chatted briefly with him and he explained that he travels all over the country — it’s a full-time job — selling this merchandise at Republican rallies.
