Egotistical and narcissistic Humpty just has to control everything. His changing the venue is a huge mistake. Hopefully, as he has done with other of his "incredible ideas" (e.g., military parade on Constitution Ave.), he may back-off before the day of the event. But all this keeps his name and photo in the news.
The Lincoln Memorial (Humpty's choice) is at the west end of The Mall. The U.S. Capitol Building is at the east end of The Mall. In the middle stands the Washington Monument - where the Fourth of July concert and fireworks show have been held for years. There is plenty of spectator space all around the Washington Monument. Also, the Tidal Basin provides space for boaters to anchor and watch the big show.
There are a number of Metro stops surrounding the Washington Monument. There is no Metro stop by the Lincoln Memorial. The Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial takes up way too much spectator space. Behind the Lincoln Memorial is the Potomac River. This is not a practical spot for the spectators. And, the Lincoln Memorial blocks the view for boaters on the Potomac River.
