Party Conventions: Political Theatre

The 2008 Republican and Democratic Conventions were two of the most attended party conventions in history – both delivering the subsequent amusing political theatre that comes when tens of thousands of American voters gather in one place. Protests, pepper spray and police barricades created a chaotic scene at the Republican convention for nominee Senator McCain in Saint Paul, Minnesota. While Oba-maniacs – from the 84,000 fans cramming in to Denver’s Invesco Field hopeful to see the presidential nominee speak, to locals peddling Obama kitsch and collectables - flocked to Denver, Colorado. The 2008 party conventions provided politics, along with the antics and humor that comes with the crowds.
