Part 18 - I try to get up towards the stage and score a press pass like last time, but it just wasn't going to happen (That is, unless I waited around by the side of the stage for a while, and I didn't want to risk missing Barbara Lee.)
So I decided to brave it in the main crowd 200 yards or so out from the stage.
At this point, Kevin took off -- he was tired and wasn't up for dealing with the crowd.
The crowd is really dense and hard to walk through, especially with my camera, so I give up and decide to just place my camera a top the tripod, and fold up the legs of my tripod so I can hold it squarely with both arms several feet above the crowd.
At this point I shoot the footage you see below. (That's Tom Ammiano telling bad jokes in the background.)
