Busy Day in Denver
Today was the acceptance speech, and the change over the city was palpable. Where the streets were packed over the past few days, today more than 80,000 people spent hours in line to get into Invesco Stadium to see Barack accept the nomination. It was a relatively quiet day downtown. One of our team made it into the stadium, and the rest of us watched it from home. Although the experience was a mediated as talking to Lynn Hershman's DINA, it felt more immediate for knowing it was just a few miles away and being able to hear the boom out the window of the fireworks we were watching on TV.
