The streets surrounding the National Mall are filled with rallygoers, as they slowly filter away.
As a live performance event, the rally had high moments of music and humor, but also some plodding comedy bits — not that surprising given that it was three hours of entertainment written and produced by late night staffs for half hour shows. But those I talked to clearly enjoyed it, and the 90 percent entertainment, 10 percent seriousness was for first-time rallygoers a warped perception of other traditional, non-narrative political events packed with speakers and introductions.
There is the question of what impact this may have on the discourse, but also what it may, and should have, on other political rallies. The bar has been raised.
