Reports: DNC ‘Temple of Obama’ could’ve been even more outlandish

That's right, the classical stage set widely derided by Republicans as the "Temple of Obama," and rather pricklishly defended by Democrats who pointed to a similar set-up behind President Bush when he addressed his convention in 2004. Well, it could have been worse — a lot worse.
