Obama’s DNC speech could move to Bank of America stadium

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is considering moving the final day of the Democratic National Convention to Bank of America Stadium to sell more skyboxes to wealthy donors, three Democrats involved in the fundraising told Bloomberg News.

The 74,000-seat home of the Carolina Panthers also would have room for the convention to sell more floor passes close to the stage. Planners are struggling to meet a $36.6 million fundraising goal, according to the Democrats, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the matter.

An outdoor finale for the convention would echo the atmosphere of four years ago in Denver, when Obama accepted his party’s nomination at night at Invesco Field.


Hubris. The man embodies it.

    The only thing surprising is that anyone would attend… An then there’s the paying to attend.

    Here’s my piece on Hillary Clinton’s showing in the NH primary yesterday: http://peacocksandlilies.com/2012/01/11/hillary-clinton-took-10-of-the-nh-vote-yesterday/

    Interesting stuff. She did better than any other write-in candidate with the exception of LBJ in ’68.

    $36 million for a speech ? On top of his re-inauguration and all the balls that will be given? If Obama’s re-elected, I betcha’ there will be a MONTH in Hawaii between the two main events.

    Tavis Smiley is still losing jobs thanks to Obots/speaking the truth. This time he was booted from a MLK event thanks to six complaints.

    can we do a rain dance, pray for thunder and lightning? Maybe a tornado or snow?
    remember backtrack wilts in the rain. Somewhere there are pictures of a rain event and backtrack.

    Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air has suggested that the podium be an ATM machine. Who says conservatives don’t have a sense of humor?
