Obama accepts nomination

Sun Expanded Coverage

(The Sun has gone on the road to listen to voters and talk to political leaders around the West. Reporters have been examining the economic, cultural and demographic forces re-shaping the region as they drove to Denver for the first of the two major party conventions the Sun will cover. This week they are at the Democratic National Convention.)

DENVER - Well, you saw what we saw as Sen. Barack Obama "with profound gratitude and great humility" accepted the Democratic party's presidential nomination.

If it felt like it looked big on TV, know that it was here in Denver.

No need to count ballons in the drop at the end of this convention. Fireworks for a new day from the Democrats.

The largest nomination acceptance in history, the convention organizer said.

The Nevada delegation had great seats on the floor, and surely will have stories to tell.

It'll be interesting to see how the Republicans compare next week in St. Paul.

We'll be there.
