Look at the difference!

llinois Sen. Barack Obama will speak Monday at the Colorado State Fair Grandstand Arena.

tickets will be available Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m until 8 p.m. at several campaign offices.

People can get tickets at the Lakewood office at 9797 West Colfax Avenue, the Morrison office at 19423 North Turkey Creek Road Suite 1, the Arvada office at 7402 West 57th Avenue and the Golden office at 710 Golden Ridge Road.

Palin, who has been drawing huge crowds at rallies with McCain, was to appear Monday at an outdoor pancake breakfast at the fairgrounds. However, the McCain campaign said demand for tickets was so great that they moved the event to the Westernaires Arena and will hold a rally to accommodate more people. Her event is open to the public, but a ticket is required. Doors will open at 7 a.m. and the event begins at 9 a.m.

"Our phones have been ringing off the hook and the line has been out the door and into the street," said McCain spokesman Tom Kise. "Unfortunately the campaign has no more tickets to give away."

They moved her to a larger venue and still have people begging to get in.

Colorado abuzz over Palin

Fve thousand adoring Sarah Palin fans cheered the Alaska governor's every utterance at a soldout campaign event at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds this morning.

Students cut school, soccer moms brought their kids and GOP faithful hoisted home-made signs that read "Soccer Moms for Palin" and "Lipstick Republicans for Palin."

Palin Talks Wall Street At Golden Rally (http://cbs4denver.com/politics/palin.colorado.golden.2.817786.html)

GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4/AP) ― Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told Colorado Monday morning she wants to go to Washington to "shake things up." Palin started her remarks talking about the new unease on Wall Street caused by the bankruptcy at Lehman Brothers.

Palin called the Lehman bankruptcy a crisis and says the nation's financial regulatory system needs a "complete overhaul." She says financial reforms would be a top priority for her and Republican nominee John McCain.

The Alaska governor talked Monday morning to a packed crowd at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Golden.

Former Colorado Gov. Bill Owens introduced her. He called her a model of independence and Western values. Palin applauded when Owens said we need to win the war in Iraq.

Many who streamed into the even earlier were dressed in red, white and blue. A long line extended around the Westernaires arena at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds Monday morning. Palin drew a capacity crowd of 5,000 for her solo appearance on the campaign trail.

Bill Owens and I went to college together in East Texas. We were co-chairs of the Young Republicans.:)
