    You didn't fill that!

    Democrats set to move Obama's big speech from 74,000-seater outdoor stadium to 20,000-seater indoor arena

    Democrats are poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium by shifting his speech to an indoor arena and citing ‘severe weather’.

    The Obama campaign have been working desperately to ensure that the 74,000-seater Bank of America stadium in Charlotte would be filled.

    Buses for students from across North Carolina and even members of black churches in neighboring South Carolina have been arranged.

    Footage of rows of empty seats at the stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, as Obama speaks on Thursday night would be politically disastrous – an enduring image of the contrast between his campaign of ‘hope’ and ‘change’ in 2008 and his dour, negative struggle for re-election in 2012.

    Now, it looks like the weather has come to the President's rescue.

    People watch football in any weather, what wimps that are afraid of a little rain!
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
