Move over, David Hasselhoff. An Associated Press report on Barack Obama's speech in Berlin contains this bit of news about the audience that gathered to hear the presumptive Democratic nominee speak:

Police spokesman Bernhard Schodrowski said there were more than 200,000 people, nearly three times the 75,000 Obama drew in Oregon this spring in his largest previous audience.
