Dean has busy two days checking out Denver convention sites

Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean has a busy two-day agenda in Denver today and Thursday.

Today, he is seeing what construction workers have accomplished in the past two weeks as they convert the Pepsi Center from a sports arena to a convention hall. On Thursday, he will check out Invesco Field at Mile High — home of the NFL Broncos — where Sen. Barack Obama is scheduled to make his acceptance speech on the final day of the convention.

When Republican National Committee Chair Mike Duncan visits here to inspect construction of GOP convention facilities at Xcel Energy Center, maybe he can do it in one day because all four days of events are scheduled for the X.

No plans have been announced for moving Sen. John McCain’s acceptance speech to a larger, more public venue, like the Metrodome. (But that hasn’t stopped Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau from having some fun with that idea — and with the Vikings, too!)
