Obama to Accept Nomination to a Crowd of 75K

The Obama campaign and the Democratic Convention have announced that Obama will make his nomination speech not in the convention centre itself, but in the nearby football stadium - which holds up to 75,000 people.
“The Democratic Party is nominating a true change candidate this August, and it is only fitting that we make some big changes in how we put on the Convention,” said Governor Howard Dean, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). “Senator Obama’s candidacy has generated an enormous amount of excitement and interest, not only in the Democratic Party but also in the 2008 Convention. By bringing the last night of the Convention out to the people, we will be able to showcase Barack Obama’s positive, people-centered vision for our country in a big way. ”
