I am fortunate enough to have a VIP ticket to tomorrow's Obama rally in Denver
. Should I bring my 2 year old?

The main reason I want to go (and take time off work) is so I can hopefully take a photo of my 28 month old daughter with Obama in the background. I think it would be a great photo memory for her.
She's a pretty average toddler. Not that timid, not that brave. I recognize that it will involve quite a bit of hanging around. But hopefully not too frantic a crowd. (I think the VIP bit just means that we'll be near the front.)
I've never been to such a rally before. I would hope that she can just sit on my shoulders, cheer and clap--there's music (Will-i-am
). And hopefully I can bring in a backpack with snacks and diapers--otherwise I'll have to stuff my pockets. I'll probably have to spend some time covering her ears if it's too loud.
Anyone who's been to a similar rally, is this crazy? Great? Obviously I know my daughter--I just don't know what to expect at the rally.
I can only get one ticket (or at least VIP ticket) so my wife won't be coming.
