Obama Arrives in Denver
By Anne E. Kornblut
DENVER -- Renegade has landed.
Sen. Barack Obama touched down in Denver just before 3 p.m. local time and will now head to the Westin hotel downtown -- just as delegates are preparing to formally vote him in as the nominee.
And while there are "no plans" for Obama to appear in the convention hall tonight, there is every possibility that he will make a surprise appearance onstage.
Still, Obama has work to do: David Axelrod, his senior adviser, said during the flight to Colorado that the senator was still revising his acceptance speech after more than a week of writing and editing. He had written it out himself in longhand, filing change after change (it is now typed up in a draft). Axelrod said even the length could yet change -- and did not hazard a guess of how long it is.
