John Kerry touched my shoulder earlier tonight in Denver.
It was in the basement of the strange-looking, modern-pyramidesque Renaissance Hotel, where the Maryland delegation is staying, which isn’t too convenient for them because it’s on the other side of the city from all of the action. Congressman Elijah Cummings hosted a reception there tonight, while the Massachusetts folks were partying upstairs.
Shortly after entering the large ballroom, I felt a hand on my shoulder. I turned around, thinking it was someone I knew, only to see the distinctive looking former presidential candidate right behind me. It looked like he was trying to shake as many hands as possible, while leaving the room at the same time… very presidential.
