As Senator Biden spoke Tuesday night, thousands of people from the Mid-Ohio Valley listened to what he had to say.

It was big night for the town of Marietta as people of all ages crowded together to get a glimpse of a man who may be the nation's next vice president.

"I thought he was excellent. I think he energized the crowd, and he spelled out the differences between the McCain/Palin ticket and the Obama/Biden ticket," "Elinor Payton, an Obama/Biden supporter, said.

Leaving Obama/Biden supporters even more hopeful of a democratic victory.

"Fantastic. He's one of the greatest, and he's gonna be a great vice president," Henry Hunter, another Obama/Biden supporter, said.

And what really got the crowd going was the content of Senator Biden's speech.

"He hit on a lot of issues that I wanted to hear just as far as middle class and where we're going as far as working, jobs and the job market, so he hit on a lot of things that I wanted to hear personally," Khayyam Payton, another Obama/Biden supporter, said.

    I have not seen anything that will save our industry. Creating a bunch of minimum wage jobs will employ a lot more college kids, decent wage job for our displaced workers. We lost millions of Jobs due to dumping of overseas steel and alloys. Killed our automotive and steel industries. Let our Oil Companies sell overseas for more profit while depleting U.S. Supplies. Free Trade. Clinton. The turmoil that we are living in reflects the most massive dislocation of jobs in U.S. history when millions lost their jobs while President Clinton proclaimed prosperity. The unemployment rates did not reflect the situation and a working poor class was set in place. Thank Bill Clinton. Blame Republicans how? Maybe George was too dumb to fix it, but Bill caused it. Maybe it's time an Independent got a turn.
