Berlin: Obama outdraws Kennedy and Reagan combined





Barack Obama drew a crowd estimated at 200,000 people in Berlin yesterday.

This not only surpassed his own record of 75,000 in Portland (which was aided by the presence of a rock band performance earlier in the day), but the record of both Presidents Kennedy and Reagan.

When President Kennedy delivered his famous 'Ich bin ein Berliner' speech in 1963 he attracted a crowd of 120,000.

Nearly a quarter century later President Reagan told Gorbachev to "tear down this wall." He attracted a crowd of 40,000, according to ABC News.
