TEMPLE OF DEM ON MT. O-LYMPUS

DENVER - Democrats will kneel before the "Temple of Obama" tonight.
As if a Rocky Mountain coronation were not lofty enough, Barack Obama will aim for Mount Olympus when he accepts his party's nomination atop an enormous, Greek-columned stage - built by the same cheesy set team that put together Britney Spears' last tour.
"We've done Britney's sets and a whole bunch of rock shows, but this was far more elaborate and complicated and we had to do it in far less time," said Allen, of RDA Entertainment.
"The biggest challenge has been making sure we don't damage the playing field underneath."
Asked who is harder to satisfy - the Democrats or Britney - Allen replied: "I better not answer that."
