The results of the Republican and Democratic national conventions may not be in doubt, but for political junkies, they are still the equivalent of the Olympics as far as attending or participating.

So a Coeur d’Alene college student is understandably excited to be picked as an intern to the Democratic National Convention next month. Chelsea Brown, a University of Idaho grad working on her masters at Salisbury University, got the call as part of arrangement between the conventions and the Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars. She won an essay contest to get the gig.

Brown has a couple of goals: to re-establish the College Democrats club on the Maryland university’s campus, and to meet President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her stint at the convention. Could be a tossup which would be easier. But if she were talking about boosting support for Democratic candidates back in her hometown, we all know which would be the tougher task.
