How early should I get to an Obama rally at which the "doors open" at 4pm?

Pardon me if this is a dumb question, but I'm a relatively new attender of political rallies in which very popular politicians will be there.
On Monday I'd like to go see Barack Obama speak, at my university's full-sized basketball court/arena. The doors open at 4:00pm, and the event's evidentally supposed to start at 6:00pm. I don't need to be super close, but I'd also like to not be in the nosebleed section. No tickets involved, and seating on a first-come-first served basis.
If I show up at 4, will I be pushing it to be getting in at all? Should I be showing up at more like 3? Is that overdoing it? Thoughts? Experience?
