Avoiding 'historic' embarrassment: Dems move Obama’s speech to smaller venue

Organizers for the Democratic National Convention were confident they would fill every one of the 73,778 seats in Charlotte’s mammoth Bank of America Stadium by Thursday night.

However, as reported Tuesday by The Daily Mail, organizers are now “poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium” by moving the location of his speech to the more modest Time Warner Cable Arena, “which has a capacity of just over 20,000.”
