The Idaho delegation to the Democratic National Convention were in line to be front and center — or at least front, and a bit to the left of the podium — for the gathering in Denver.
They were, that is, until Joe Biden was named Barack Obama’s running mate. That meant the delegation from Biden’s home state of Delaware got moved to the foreground and Idaho got Delaware’s location.
A location which was described by a network news reporters as “in the nose bleed section.”
Gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brady writes about the switcheroo in his blog and says the delegation was relatively unfazed by it:
“Idaho delegates seemed not the least disturbed by this Sunday. Many were dancing the early night away at a spashy party thrown by the Louisiana Delegation at the Colorado Convention Center to highlight the transformation taking place in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.”
