President Barack Obama says he's "looking forward to laying out what's at stake in this election."

He'll have the chance to do so tonight in his speech to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Obama spent much of the day at a hotel, tweaking the speech and consulting with advisers.

Citing a chance of thunderstorms, organizers moved the event indoors from a 74,000-seat outdoor stadium. Obama spoke in a conference call today to some of those who were supposed to hear him speak, and said campaign officials would try to get them into other events in the weeks ahead.

He asked them to keep working on his behalf in a close race, saying his rivals are preparing a "barrage of negative ads" with the help of "massive checks from wealthy donors."

One delegate says of Obama, "He's preaching to the choir, but he needs the choir to be motivated."
