CBNNews.com -- Sen. Barack obama has delivered a curve ball to the residents of Denver.

Click the play button on the media player to watch David Brody's analysis of Obama's move.

Obama says he wants to move his acceptance speech for the Democratic Presidential nomination to the stadium where the Denver broncos play.

He says he wants to accept his nomination in front of the people -- and not just party leaders.

It will also mean a larger crowd.

INVESCO Field seats more than 75,000 people -- compared to the Pepsi Center which holds 20,000.

"This is very much in keeping with Senator Obama's philosophy and, I might add, my philosophy as well," Dean said of moving the speech. "I think it's very fitting, especially the way Sen. Obama got here with his enourmous grassroots operation."

The DNC Convention begins August 25.

Obama will speak on the fourth and final night of the convention -- which happens to be the 45th anniversary of the I have a Dream speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was given on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial back in 1963.
