Inauguration: Looking to duplicate Invesco or Grant Park

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The Obama inauguration planners are looking for some splashy events that will be accessible to a lot of people, a sort of Invesco Field or Grant Park-on-the-mall.

80,000 or so at Invesco, 250, 000 at Grant Park, but we're talking at least a couple of million here. - Chicago Sun-Times
Chicagoans Penny Pritzker, John Rogers and William Daley will be among the Obama inauguration co-chairs, with the Presidential Inauguration Committee headquarters up and running in southwest Washington. Fund-raising calls have already started for the Jan. 20 event expected to draw millions to the city.
