Delegate credentialsAugust 30, 2008
The delegate credentials were like gold around the convention. I didn’t have to wait in lines to get into most places. The ink actually scanned. How great is all that? I suppose it made the credentials difficult to scan. We had to be present at every delegation breakfast to pick them up. The DNC was adament about this. It didn’t matter how far up you considered yourself up the Democratic foodchain. In this, we were all equal.
On the back of every pass, we had the Denver story.
