Also, DNC Chairman Howard Dean toured Pepsi Center today:
Dean thanked workers who are transforming the Pepsi Center for the delegates. He seemed pretty impressed with the progress. He told them it's amazing what they've done in just two weeks. With a little over a month to go, he admitted he is getting a little nervous.

"Thirty-three days to go and you're doing a great job, so I'm just going to keep biting my nails until the day this thing opens and in 33 days we'll all be standing with our hand over our heart, saluting the flag," Dean said. "I hope some of you will come because some of you will still be needed to be here to put the finishing touches on."
