Dust Off the Greek Columns, Obama Plans Another Stadium Speech for the Democrat Convention

Can he still get 80,000 people to come hear him speak?  I'm sure the DNC will make sure it happens, but it certainly won't have the emotional appeal of the 2008 speech:
Hoping to summon the energy surrounding his 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention, President Obama will again accept his party’s nomination for president next September at a football stadium that seats nearly 80,000 people.

The president will deliver his acceptance speech at Bank of America Stadium – home of the Carolina Panthers – in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Democratic National Convention Committee announced Tuesday. In 2008, Obama accepted his party’s nomination at Denver’s Mile High Stadium (home of the Denver Broncos) instead of the much smaller Pepsi Center, where the rest of the convention was held.
The man's arrogance knows no bounds.

Since this speech will be in Charlotte, NC, maybe NASCAR should schedule a big race at Lowe's Motor Speedway that night and we can see who gets the bigger crowd.
