DENVER – Some 75,000 people inside Invesco Field and millions more around the world are expected to tune in this evening to witness Barack Obama accept the Democratic nomination for president of the United States, the first black person in history.

On the floor of the Democratic National Convention at Pepsi Center Wednesday, former opponent Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, called for a suspension of the traditional roll call of the states and made a motion that all votes go to Obama for president.

The motion carried.

Talk of Obama changing what ails America has permeated the four-day convention. His message of hope and change rang at venues across the city.

At a breakfast Wednesday for the New Mexico Delegation, senatorial candidate Rep. Tom Udall praised Obama and called on everyone to help get him and other Democrats elected so his message could be realized.

Udall spoke of his recent two week tour traveling New Mexico and said, “Democrats traditionally lose in the South ... we’re not going to lose in the South,” he said.

Udall asked the delegation for their help.
