Post Convention Monday
We headed straight to the Rocky Mountain Salute to Democratic Governors at Elitch Gardens following the convention. Another spectacular event that featured carnival fare, BBQ and drinks in a spotless theme park. I shook hands with Governor Richards, who looks really good with a scruffy beard and we spotted Governor Paterson of New York. The highlight was taking a ferris wheel ride and seeing the Mile High City from above.
The walk back to the Buell Theatre for Rock the Vote (www.rockthevote.com) was interesting. I was told I could not take a photo of my fellow delegates being frisked on the way out of the "secure zone" and got a little cranky, but it didn't last long. I caught a couple of very loud songs of Fall Out Boy,and called it a night.
