The Idaho delegation to the Democratic National Convention in Denver may have been excited to see that they would be sitting on the floor of the Pepsi Center, close enough to the big stage to see Obama’s pimples. But that was Saturday.
Sometime on Sunday the seating arrangements got all swapped around to accommodate Joe Biden’s people. Delaware, according to convention tradition, gets a front row seat, so that bumped Idaho into the bleachers. Way into the bleachers. A floor seat became practically an airborne seat.
But it’s not all bad. Idaho delegate Jerry Brady wrote in a NewWest.net column that his compatriots did not really mind.
"Idaho delegates seemed not the least disturbed by this Sunday. Many were dancing the early night away at a splashy party thrown by the Louisiana Delegation at the Colorado Convention Center to highlight the transformation taking place in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina."
