    I personally feel they just don't want the boo's they would get at the track.

    They will be in a crisis by the time of the convention.

    Here's another similar but unrelated item:
    The winner of the “Have dinner with Barrack” contest was disqualified because he is an Obama campaign staffer. What are the odds? He says it’s because he clicks on it every chance he get to see if it’s working.

    What this suggests to me is they aren't getting too many clickers on that raffle.

    (I should've said that I just heard it on Fox News, and Special Report with Brett Baier )

    What's amazing is that they've been screwing people for so long and they are shocked at the difficulty they are having raising money. Who would have thought it?

    I heard Obama is having a recreation of the temple of Apollo at Delphi constructed for his nomination acceptance speech...

    There was always a risk if boos at the CMS, and all work there is non onion employees. Also, Bruton Smith owns Charlotte Motor Speedway and he demanded a check. Given the non-existant fundraising by Debbie Wah Wah and the crowd at the DNC, the DNC couldn’t write one.

    Seating capacity at CMS is 140,000, the One didn’t want to give Sean Hannity the pleasure of showing the empty seats on Fox or Madcow calling the DNC to complain of having to spin the empty seating.

    There appears to be a gross amount of failed planning and logistics.

    Hmmm maybe I'm too skeptical I read and just heard another interview about Obama's campaign finances. Lol es no gud .....I thought it was a tactic- playing the underdog, bit he will have half as much as Mitt the last two months they say. I still don't think anyone that's a Democrat wants to be at a track.
