Obama May Give Convention Speech At Mile High Stadium

Move over Denver Broncos. This looks like a good idea if it happens. Republicans always play the media game the best and this is something that will be a media sensation.


Barack Obama's campaign is considering moving his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention from the Pepsi Center to Invesco Field at Mile High to allow tens of thousands to witness the historic moment, sources say.

The move would mark a major departure from tradition, but would be in keeping with the candidate's desire to build a large grass-roots campaign focused on "change."

Invesco Field, home of the Denver Broncos, seats 76,125 and presumably several thousand more could fit on the field. The Pepsi Center holds less than 20,000 and is to be restricted to delegates, media, high-dollar donors and guests of the Democratic Party


How many people do you think would come to see McCain at an event like this?
