Denver DNC 08 (Day 4)
302 // August 28, 2008
Yesterday I said that I’d be taking you up the street to Johnson & Wales — I did you one better. I’m taking you downtown for the last day of the DNC. LIterally, I just couldn’t stay away, it’s addicting.
I ended up venturing alone down to the spots that we’ve frequented earlier this week, but it’s when I came around 15th that I saw went where the crowds were going and followed.
I ran into the MSNBC tower where they were broadcasting, and even got a couple pictures of Bill Richardson, though a tad blurry.
Soon I found myself going over the bridge onto Speer, then onto Water Street… and then I could see Invesco. I said “hey, what the hell” and keep going. Thinking I wouldn’t be able to get very close to the stadium, I wanted to push and see where I could get.
I saw lots of interesting (angry) signs that I don’t care to share here along the ride. There were many bikers and mostly people walking to get their place in line for Obama’s speech tonight. I really have a lot of cool pictures to show you, maybe you’ll see them in the next couple of days.
When I arrived at 20th and Federal, this is 1) how far away I still was from Invesco and 2) what the line looked like. The line extended still to the far left and far right of me.
Given the circumstances, I would’ve gladly stood in line for the entire day if I was able to experience that speech he gave tonight in person.
Yes We Can.
