DENVER—-The big question of the evening: Would Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, due in to Denver tonight, appear with the District delegation for Sen. Hillary Clinton‘s featured speech.

He did not, though one local big shot did show in time—-Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans.

That means that, ahead of Barack Obama‘s acceptance spectacular on Thursday night at Mile High Stadium, Fenty will appear only Wednesday with the rank-and-file to offer the District’s delegate tally toward Obama’s nomination.
