The Democratic National Convention gets started today, and 29 Utah delegates will be there. On the streets in Denver it's an Olympic-type atmosphere, complete with a high-security presence. Near the Pepsi Center, some protests were aimed not at Democrats but at war, the economy and the like.
Utah delegates have been busy; it seems a lot of national media is taking interest in what a Utah Democrat is like. Emily Rushton has done quite a few interviews. She says she's talked to MTV, National Public Radio (NPR) and C-SPAN.
Rushton is getting extra attention because she used to be a staunch Republican. Two film crews will follow Kurt Bestor and another Utah delegate around as they experience the events of the day.
