Caption: On Sept 28. 2010, a shadow falls on a "W" banner on Bascom Hill at the University of Wisconsin-Madison while the last rays of a golden sunset shine on the Wisconsin State Capitol dome on the horizon. The view was captured as an overflow crowd, off camera, filled Bascom Hill and surrounding areas to hear President Barack Obama's speech at Library Mall. Obama's appearance at the Moving America Forward rally, sponsored by the Democratic National Committee, was the first UW visit by a sitting president in 60 years. UW Police estimated that 17,200 spectators packed Library Mall, and a total crowd of 26,500 turned out for Obama's visit.
