I am sitting at Mile High Stadium this morning. Got here at 1am local time to get ready to help John Roberts and American Morning start the CNN day. The stage is set – really – for Barack Obama's acceptance speech tonight.
But my eyes are on Gustav. The storm is spinning in the Caribbean, not sure where it will hit, or when. But it could be Monday, and it could be New Orleans, and that could be another disaster. I'm heading from Denver to New Orleans with Anderson tomorrow morning. We'll see what the new day brings.
The effects of Gustav could be felt as far north as Minneapolis. Not wind and rain, but attention on the storm could sap attention from the Republican Convention which starts Monday.
We hear that John McCain has decided on his running mate, but his pick does not know. That lucky person will get the call today. And my CNN friends say McCain will reveal his pick on Friday in Ohio.
And all that – Gustav and McCain – will fight for attention with Barack Obama's big night. The Democratic National Convention wraps up tonight with the now official Democratic presidential nominee addressing about 75,000 people at Invesco Field at Mile High.
Should be lots of fun.
