Even before the Democratic National Convention began several blocks away, protesters set up shop inside the flower-filled Civic Center Park in downtown Denver plying their issues and wares. Most of the protests hit President George Bush, but some also took a shot at Sen. John McCain and the liberals' charge that he would bring a third Bush term to Washington. While the protests were the main focus, most groups also sold goods like T-shirts and Impeach Bush ribbons for up to $20, making the Monday event a profitable one too.
