The highlight of this week’s trip to the Democratic National Convention in Denver was being on the floor of the Pepsi Center as Barack Obama‘s name was placed into nomination, the roll call of the states began and then Hillary Clinton called for accepting him by acclamation. The move inspired deafening cheers as delegates danced arm in arm to the O’Jay’s “Love Train.” (Did anyone else see me on CNN!).
While in Denver I reported on a group of notable doc filmmakers who are joining forces for a film about the event, and also covered the world premiere of a provocative new film about stem cell research.

P.S. I have a bunch of Obama campaign buttons to give away (while supplies last). If you want a free button, just ask me for one in Telluride (or Toronto).
