KeyArena is full and people are being turned away for today's speech by Barack Obama. The capacity is 17,000. They're seating VIPs and media on the arena floor.
There was no security going in, reports my wife, Anne Koch. She notes that it's harder to get into a Mariners game at Safeco Field.
Obama's speech is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. Pacific time, but you know how campaign schedules go. NorthWest Cable News is planning to cover it live.
