Obama opts for larger nomination venue

In a break from tradition, the Democratic Party announced that Barack Obama will accept the party's nomination at a separate venue than that used for the Democratic Convention in Denver.

The event will be held at the Invesco Stadium in Mile High, which holds more than 75,000 people, a much larger capacity than the Pepsi Center where the convention is held. With more people in the audience, Obama's speech is expected to have a major PR impact.

"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 Gov. Howard Dean, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

A special block of seats will be reserved at the event for Colorado residents who present the proper credentials.
