Gold star to the DNC and Denver

We've made it to Denver following a pleasant and uneventful flight. All day long Amy and I have both been amazed at the ease we have been able to navigate the city to pick up credentials in two different locations and get our bearings for the rest of the week. The DNC seems to have their organizational act together - no small feat for a party that is often infamous for disorganization. As for Denver, the city is beautiful and everyone we have encountered has been welcoming, friendly and helpful. They are clearly glad we are here.

Now, we are taking a few minutes to blog (after all that's why we are here) and rest before we try to meet up with members of the Georgia delegation for tonight's activities. During our short trek downtown, we saw a few protesters, got a bite to eat and then stumbled upon the MSNBC set where Keith Olberman, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough and the rest of the team will be reporting all week. Their slogan is The Place for Politics however, the entire City seems to fit that bill.

While we were there, Gus was able to meet Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski and take this great picture.

I'm pretty sure that if Chuck Byrd were in Denver, we could find him hanging out there each morning to catch those two and his favorite news program, Morning Joe.
