Around the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday was quite different from Sunday when I was around the events. The security was definitely stepped up even more, and the 16th Street Mall was filled with delegates, protesters, tourists and members of the press. By Union Station MSNBC has their set which allows folks to stand nearby the live broadcast and wave signs, have their voice heard or just watch the surroundings. This is the only network to have their main set outside the security perimeter.
Along the Mall and outside the entrances to the Pepsi Center, there are many vendors taking advantage of these crowds whether they are Hillary supporters, button collectors or people just wanting to take home something to mark the convention.
While the fun of the convention draws many it is the events at the Pepsi Center which the people are here for at this convention.
Heading to the Pepsi Center
and while they head to the security gates, some protesters are out delivering their message.
Of course not all folks are for the democrats or republicans this year, and some of those folks are out at Civic Center Park.
