My photo and video from the Bernie Sanders event in Denver tonight.

I got there about two hours early to get a good seat. Ended up eight rows back, center-left.



I got one short video clip of his speech before my camera battery died. So here's Bernie, talking about the decline of the middle class wages despite increased worker productivity.



So freaking inspiring to hear a political candidate talk about real issues affecting real people! He ranged from gender wage equity, to reinstating Glass-Steagal, to explaining the TPP (in easy-to-understand language), to the climate denial all around us - going so far in praising Pope's encyclical on climate as to refer to Francis as "a great man of God." Really a remarkable event.

1. Thank you, thank you, thank you

Happy that some DU'ers got to see and hear him.
Hope the whole talk will be available tomorrow.

From your clip it is so obvious why people come by the thousands----he's not talking at people he is talking to make them a part of it. He isn't afraid to say things that might offend some.

4. It was definitely being recorded.

There was a cadre of people with cameras, including a couple large, professional-looking cameras center stage. Every body and their brother recorded snippets on their phones, too. I would have loved to have captured his bit about closing the gender wage gap. That was electrifying.
