Inside Mile High Stadium

It's quite a chaotic scene here - huge, 2-hour wait to get through security. People are still filing in and the line outside still snakes (I'm told) a mile or more.
One inside, you need at least a graduate degree in statistics to figure out where you sit with any given credential. And then outlets, internet...
All that quasi-settled, the atmosphere is electric. Richardson is speaking now, and used the line 'John McCain pays hundreds for his shoes, but we're the ones paying for his flip-flops.' Not bad.
Can't wait to see Stevie. Hoping he plays "As." I've seen him live once, and he's incredible.
How does it look on TV?

Update [2008-8-28 21:21:24 by Josh Orton]: Stevie!
Update [2008-8-28 21:21:24 by Josh Orton]: Wes Clark comes on the stage as part of the program - buried among a dozen other military figures.
Update [2008-8-28 21:24:25 by Josh Orton]: Gen. Clark walks on and off the stage without saying a single word. Unbelievable.
Update [2008-8-28 21:47:52 by Josh Orton]: Playing Springsteen's great "Born in the USA" in the arena. Taking this song back from Ronald Reagan's misappropriation in the 80's.
