I'm just finishing up copying my video to my PC, so I'm gonna make this short.
The parade was interesting, and I had a lot of great footage of Ned, his family, and hundreds of Lamont supporters marching.
The mounted police or some other horse troops led off the parade. I can tell they've been feeding the horses exceptionally well, because the parade route was decorated with impressive piles of bio-degradable "exhaust"; you really had to watch where you were going, which isn't easy when you are walking backwards to video the candidate and his supporters marching!
Joe Lieberman also marched, although oddly, he lagged WAY behind the rest of the parade. After Ned and the Newtown Democrats marched, by parade's end there was a gap of nearly 20 minutes before Joe and his few supporters came by.
For the record, I have absolutely nothing to do with this person. But it WAS funny the way Joe shook his offered hand, and then got a good look at him and recoiled like something that smelled really awful assaulted his nostrels.
The media was well-represented, and I even got my mic pushed away by the CNN camera guy when I was holding it up to Joe to hear what he had to say during their interview. I did get to ask Joe a respectful question, and I think Tammy Sun (Joe's new press secretary) was captured on tape squawking that the Senator had to get going NOW. He still answered my question, even though it was my usual on-the-run interview. Fun.
"*xyz" (from FDL, who came up from NYC to support Ned) and I got stuck in parade traffic, so I got to the Danbury DTC as Ned was finishing up his statements. But I got some good video of him speaking directly to everyone who wanted to talk to him.
All in all, it was a fun day. Video clips should be up in an hour or two.
