Every news outlet has set up on the field. The Mile High Stadium has been transformed into a city of tents. Even if you are not an Obama supporter you have to give him his props. He won a hard-fought campaign against a formidable opponent and tonight, on the 45th Anniversary of Dr. Martin King's "I Have A Dream" Speech, he will emerge as one of the most important leaders in America.
