The Road To Denver

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
2008 Democratic National Convention

Date August 25 - August 28

Presidential Nominee
Barack Obama of Illinois (Presumptive)
Vice Presidential Nominee

The 2008 Democratic National Convention will be held from August 25 to August 28 at the Pepsi Center, and possibly Invesco Field[1], in Denver, Colorado. At its convention, the Democratic Party will nominate its candidates for President and Vice President of the United States. By virtue of his lead among elected delegates and superdelegates, it is presumed Barack Obama will receive the nomination for President.

By custom, the incumbent president's party holds its convention after the challenging party, with the first party's convention in July and the second party's in August. This year, the Democrats' convention is first, and will be held in late August because they want to hold the convention after the 2008 Summer Olympics and want to "maximize momentum for our Democratic ticket in the final months of the Presidential election".[2]


Step One of Puma PAC’s planning for Denver is now underway. We will be posting updates and details OFTEN over the next week, so don’t fret.

First, if you are interested in joining us in Denver, please send an email today to

Please include the following info: Your real name; your blog user name if you have one; the closest major city and your state; how many in your party; and very important: whether you are DEFINITELY going, might be going, want to go but have problems.

ALSO, PLEASE PLEASE include your cell phone number.

Obviously we will only call you if absolutely necessary and would NEVER give the number away; this is a safety precaution.

IMPORTANT: Puma PAC cannot provide housing. We will be providing links and tips for accommodations, but housing all the Pumas is beyond our scope. We WILL help people get there.

Please let us know in your email HOW you plan to get to Denver: car, plane, train, bus, or Puma PAC bus. We will do our VERY BEST to help everyone get there.

Friends and family members WELCOME!

DENVER UPDATE, July 3, 2008 at 10:30pm:

ORGANIZE UPDATE! Wow, Pumas — the response is overwhelming. We will be spending the weekend hammering out details and updating everyone. Remember, the most important thing is that you come to Denver. We’ll be there — with signs and banners and cameras. Don’t be anxious or insecure. It’s a big city — they can handle a few extras. Start making your plans to be there — especially on the 27th and 28th.

DENVER UPDATE, July 3, 2008 at 12:35pm:

TRAVEL UPDATE! Puma PAC will be providing buses from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Jacksonville, and Washington DC to bring Pumas from all across the country to Denver, starting on August 24th.

Please help pay for these buses. Many Pumas will find it difficult to pay for getting the time off, motels, food etc. Let’s help as many Puma PAC members as we can join us in Denver. This is a special BUSES TO DENVER FUND.

All donations made here will go EXCLUSIVELY to paying for buses. If we can raise enough to hire 100 buses, then hell yes we’ll do it. If 20,000 members each throw in $10 bucks for a free ride to Denver for a fellow Puma we’ll have enough for 500 buses.

Grab your fanny packs and get your days off from work Pumas. We’ll have a mighty convoy to Denver rolling on August 24th!
