Dem convention: Obama makes surprise visit

Barack Obama is in the house. He just came out as a “surprise” to cap the acceptance speech from this vice presidential running mate Joe Biden.

We should have known when the ushers started handing out “Obama-Biden” signs.

Obama shook hands to “The Risin’ ” by Bruce Springstein, who is reportedly not going to show up tomorrow night at Mile High stadium. Speculation about The Boss has run rampant here all week. (I’ll be disappointed; one of the things I want to do before I die is go to a Bruce Springstein concert.)

Now, we’re listening to “We Are Family,” which has been one of the Democrats’ key themes this week at this convention.

Here’s a video clip of Obama’s first few minutes on stage with Biden.
