CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Change of venue angers many

Crews were breaking down the massive set-up at Bank of America Stadium on Wednesday, now that President Barack Obama's speech has been moved.

Democratic National Convention organizers have moved the president's acceptance speech to Time Warner Cable Arena because of a threat for thunderstorms Thursday night.

The biggest issue DNC organizers face now is what to do with all of the people who have passes for Thursday.

The host committee said that Obama will address community credential holders in a conference call on Thursday.  Call information will be emailed directly to community credential holders.

Former President Bill Clinton boosts Obama in speech

President Barack Obama inherited a wreck of an economy, "put a floor under the crash" and laid the foundation for millions of good new jobs, former President Bill Clinton declared Wednesday night in a Democratic National Convention appeal aimed at millions of hard-pressed Americans yet to decide how to vote.

Conceding that many struggling in a slow-recovery economy don't yet feel the change, Clinton said in a prime-time speech that circumstances are improving "and if you'll renew the president's contract, you will feel it."

To the cheers of thousands of Democrats packed into their convention hall, he said of Obama, "I want to nominate a man who is cool on the outside but who burns for America on the inside."
