The RNC has set up a warroom just outside of downtown Denver, and plastered with clever posters declaring Obama "A Mile High, an Inch Deep."
This space (which can only be entered through a back alley) appears to have two functions: a media and oppo-research hub for RNC and McCain 2008 staff; and a staging area for the GOP "party crashers" coming to town.
The schedule of McCain surrogates in Denver has changed a bit since the RNC's announcement reported last week. Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, rather than responding to Hillary's Tuesday night speech as originally reported, will instead be in Denver Monday as part of an independents-and-Democrats-for-McCain push.
Joining Fiorina Monday morning will be former Democratic Congressman Tim Penny of Minnesota and Hillary Clinton supporter Debra Bartoshevich, a Clinton delegate from Wisconsin who was stripped of her delegate role when she publicly declared she was backing McCain.
Mitt Romney will be the star attack dog Tuesday, Rudy Giuliani Wednesday, and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty on Thursday (note, one day before McCain announces his veep).
