Guess the candidate.
Two hours before [Candidate]’s appearance at a campaign rally here Wednesday, they played the national anthem — and people stood and sang. Some even put hands on hearts! In the first row sat a woman — we’ll call her Margaret the Corporate Trainer, in Joe-the-Plumber style — wearing an actual flag pin on her shirt. “I’m American!” she said proudly. Really.
Then [candidate] took the stage and gave a stirring speech about those soldiers who “fought together and bled together and some died together under the same proud flag. They have not served a Red America! They haven’t served a Blue America! They have served the United States of America!”
The audience took up a chant of “USA! USA!”

UPDATE: Watch the Richmond, Virginia rally. There is just one America.
