Obama fires up crowd in Lexington

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama wrapped his message for change in his signature high-octane style yesterday, delighting those in the overflow crowd, many of whom came to see whether the Illinois senator is the real deal.

By the end of his 30-minute speech at the Lexington Center, Obama had the nearly 2,000 people chanting "fired up" and "ready to go" -- two of his campaign's rally cries, which he said he borrowed from a city councilwoman in South Carolina.
