Mount Olympus... (Mike Murphy, 8/27/08, TIME)

I think the normally shrewd Obama campaign has a blind spot about tomorrows big speech at Invesco field. The Pepsi center is the visual “home” of this convention. Having Obama do his big finish in another venue screws up the visual vernacular of the convention. Turn off the sound, and watch the tape. In the end it will look like two different conventions; one visually dominated by Clintons, another by Obama. That is a message of separation, not unity.

...would it really be suitable for a god to speak from the same stage that mere mortals have sullied? Ideally he'd address us from atop a cloud.
