I just returned from two hours at the rally. Turnout was maybe approaching 800-1000 when I left....more like 500-700.
Poor strategy to hold it on the day of the NFL season debut. And from what I heard from participants...poor organization in general.
Follow me blow the fold for photos and more comments from participants.

Tens and hundreds of dedicated liberal activists rallied in Washington D.C. on Sunday, 9/13 in support of the Democrats' Public Option for healthcare reform. The D.C. police and onsite conservative observers estimate the crowd size at a stunning 800 to 1000 people.
The huge turnout was due to the superior organizing skills of community organizations all across the United States. Dedicated individuals, sponsored by liberal organizations and enviromental lobbyists, were bussed in overnight to demand that Congress pass a public option as part of any meaningful healthcare bill in the House and Senate.
