Democratic National Convention, Day 1
by Stormy on August 25, 2008

In America big political events happen only once every four years and they tend to come to your city even less frequently than that.

The 2008 Democratic National Convention came to Denver on August 25. It drew huge crowds. Many came from all over the country to take part in the political process. Some came to protest the political process and many simply got out of their house and walked down the street to see what the show was like. Unlike DNC and RNC events in years past the show in Denver was fairly painless. The crowds behaved themselves. The police did not make mass arrests. The media covered the political aspects of the show and not the trouble that came with it and most importantly, the community, Democrat and Republican alike, turned out to see, be seen and welcome the event into the city. Please don't read a political message into the pictures that follow. Marmot Adventures, individual marmots and their handlers want it to be understood that these are images from the streets, events that drew crowds, public curiosities. Marmot Adventures makes no political endorsement. Our only goal is to showcase the happenings at the 2008 DNC.

Shotgun Willie's, a local strip joint, wanted to host Al Gore. He's a pretty hip guy these days.
