Preliminary Plans For Barack Obama's Invesco Field Acceptance Speech Released
A clearer view of Barack Obama's acceptance speech at Invesco Field remains elusive, as official plans have not been finalized:
Barack Obama will accept the Democratic Party's nomination from the 50-yard line of Invesco Field at Mile High, according to a draft of the stage and seating arrangements.
The plans reveal that the presumptive presidential nominee will walk from the main stage positioned along the sidelines down a 36-foot carpeted walkway to a circular podium set 6 1/2 feet off the ground.
Almost 6,000 seats for delegates will fill the rest of the field, along with platforms for network television stations and stand-up areas for affiliate broadcasters. Print journalists will have assigned seats beyond the southern end zone.
The plans for the final night of the Democratic National Convention remain under discussion, and no final announcement has been made regarding the event's staging arrangement
