While Senator Barack Obama awaits to see how the election turns out, he'll be headed to Chicago's Grant Park to see tens of thousands of supporters at what Chicagoist calls Obamapalooza. The event is ticketed (with 60,000-70,000 tickets handed out), but Mayor Daley told, well, everybody to head to the park for the festivities. Chicagoist has contributors at the event who say "The crowd is all atwit that Oprah is going to come out." And for you worrywarts, CNN is reporting Obama will be speaking from behind glass plates onstage.
