speech will be given/aired.

3. 7PM Local Time in Germany - 6 Hour Diff. So...
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 03:42 PM by otohara
1:00 PM EST??? Is that right?


The presumed Democratic nominee plans to arrive in the German capital on Thursday morning. Not much of his agenda for the day has been made public, but he is set to speak at Berlin's Victory Column -- formally the main site of the Love Parade -- at 7PM local time.

The "Obama show," as one newspaper calls it, is set to take Berlin by storm on Thursday, July 24. But a small minority is questioning whether the Democratic candidate can live up to the hype -- or justify the costs.

In the build-up to what is probably the most anticipated American campaign speech ever held on foreign soil, one of Berlin's main city magazines offered its readership cut-out American flags to wave at Barack Obama's planned address.

The presumed Democratic nominee plans to arrive in the German capital on Thursday morning. Not much of his agenda for the day has been made public, but he is set to speak at Berlin's Victory Column -- formally the main site of the Love Parade -- at 7PM local time.

Those who want to hear Obama live have been told to start arriving three hours earlier. Berlin authorities say that as many as a million people could attend. Four TV stations are broadcasting the entire speech, and the rest are scrambling to secure prime locations at the site.

Only around 13,000 Americans live in Berlin. So what is motivating Berliners and Germans in general to treat a Democratic presidential hopeful to such a royal welcome?http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,2144,3507071,00.htm...

4. Boy, he sure is not timid.
Obama doesn't flinch at anything. His trip has been amazing.

7. Geez, I hope he can fit in about 10 hours sleep. He said in Israel
that he could sleep standing up. You can bet he's gonna look and be great tomorrow....I feel like my kid is going to be in a recital and I'm a nervous wreck...Hahaha

6. According to Koz - 1PM EST
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/7/23/73226/7070

The Berlin tabloid BZ published a rough timetable which has Obama landing in Berlin early in the morning, meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel at 11am (5am EST), meeting Foreig Minister Frank Walter Steinmeier at 2pm (8am EST), after 4pm he's expected to visit the Holocaust memorial next to Brandenburg Gate and Tempelhof Airport. The speech itself is scheduled to start at 7pm (1pm EST).
