I'm in Ivesco Field now. More on that later.

They just passed out an "embargoed" copy of Richardson's speech. At first quick glance it looks like the exact same one that slipped by the embargo last night.

It's 5:18 p.m. now. I wonder if this means he's about to go on soon -- maybe after they quit playing U2's "Beautiful Day"?

UPDATE: 5:54 p.m. According to the official podium schedule, Richardson was supposed to have spoken between 5 and 6 p.m. -- right after Martin Luther King III and before the John Legend number.

Sheryl Crow is playing her third song now. Richardson couldn't have been bumped again could he?

UPDATE: 6:04 PM. Sheryl Crow has finished and Mark Udall is talking. Now I'm really wondering about the governor. Here's the rest of the schedule:

The Honorable Mark Udall
Member of the US House of Representatives, Colorado

The Honorable Tim Kaine
