On July 7, Kerry and Edwards appeared in a Rally in St. Pete. It was the first time that they appeared together in Florida.
LCV sent vans of interns to see them speak and to pump up the crowd.
Some Bush supporters showed up across the street. The LCV chants just drowned them out. It was hard not to be optimistic at this point in the campaign. Everything seemed to be going so well.
It pains me to think back to last summer and how naive we were.
