Democratic National Convention, Day 4
by Stormy on August 28, 2008

In many ways the American political process is a celebration of freedom.

The electoral process is not just something that America protests. It's also something that America celebrates. By the last day of the DNC the protests were dissipating. The 16th Street Mall was turning into a mile long party the likes of which Denver had never seen. People from all over the city flooded onto the Mall. Bands and entertainers could be found on almost every corner. A Thursday night party? Perhaps that's a little unorthodox, but that's a sign that our political system does indeed work. We come together as a nation once every four years and in a peaceful way decide who will lead the county for the four years to come. Candidates don't parade their loyal troops or display tanks in the capitol square. They make speeches and inspire people and a peaceful transition is able to take place. Celebrate our democracy! Get out and vote. That's what we do in America. And best of all, you get to make your own choice of who you wish to vote for, who you believe is best qualified to make us the best nation in the world. Look at the issues, look at the candidates and vote with your heart. 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.

Some people can't be troubled by politics. Play chess. Eat a prune. Lead a movement.

The railroad crew was a little taken aback. Maybe if we all got out and pushed?
(taken by Max on August 28, 2008)
Yep, it's that simple. A little wood shoring and the train slips back on the track. Go figure.
