Obama's Temple Transformed Overnight

Well, Obama is the candidate of change. The Greek temple backdrop at Invesco Field has suddenly become the White House.

Corky Siemasko of the New York Daily News has this report:

Barack Obama will deliver his acceptance speech Thursday from a stage that symbolically spans the ages.

By day it harkens back to the temples of ancient Greece, the birthplace of democracy, with columns made of plywood painted off-white.

Illuminated at night, the stage evokes the White House, with ten steps leading up to the top of a raised platform from which Obama will make his historic address to some 80,000 supporters.
