As much as I've tried to plug my ears to things political lately, I've let some good news slip in. The Democrats have chosen to hold their 2008 convention in Denver. As much as folks around here are going to grumble about it, the idea is a good one for the Dems. Focusing on the emerging Democratic West shows a changing party, a shifting Democratic demographic as well as less dependence on the traditional Dem strongholds of the liberal coasts.
It's also a good excuse to clean up the city, but they're already complaining about it on talk radio.
And maybe I'll have to get off my rear and volunteer for this thing.
