Mad for Mad Men at the DNC

Smokin' hot stars Jon Hamm and John Slattery in Mad Men and with Mayor John Hickenlooper at the Pepsi Center.

I'd been getting kind of cranky about all the celebrity hype surrounding the Democratic National Convention.

Where were the big parties? a radio producer wanted to know. The only party that we should be covering was the Democratic Party, I huffed.

Have you seen any stars today?, a reporter asked, to which I snorted, Forget stars, let's talk issues.

Well, forget that.

Last night at the Pepsi Center, seconds after Joe Biden finished his speech and after hours of being clobbered by discussions of the issues, I looked up -- and saw stars.
