Now this is the way for a non-delegate to attend a political convention!
We arrived on Tuesday at noon. The first session we were to attend was that very evening. At the appointed time, we walked to the hotel of our hosts and friends, C.D. and Karla Moody. We gathered with other guests for a few minutes. Then, we were advised that the car had arrived.
Organizational culture is a key component of effective diversity management. Learn how to inspire a workplace culture built on celebrating individual strengths.
We were then loaded into a new Black Cadillac Escalade with a female driver (Deborah). Deborah is a native of Denver and knows a lot about local culture and geography. For instance, on our way back from the convention, she drove us pass the city park and the Denver Art Museum (at my request).
While others had to walk ten blocks or more to approach the Pepsi Center, for security reasons, we were transported through security in the car and after customary screening, were driven to the front door of the center.
I saw lots of celebrities going in and coming out. They included all the major news personalities (Tom Brokaw, Wolf Blitzer, Donna Brazile), politicians (Charlie Rangel, Michael Dukakis), and performers (Lynn Whitfield, Dorian Harewood, et al).
