I'm not a member of any organized political party, I'm a Democrat.
I owe you lots of updates.
The convention was exhausting. Truly, truly exhausting.
It was disorganized, it was frustrating, it was expletive-inducing.
I had a great time.
Brave Sir Robin actually is engaging in the untold luxury of calling in sick today. I actually didn't wake up until 11:30 this morning. You have no idea how utterly impossible it is for me to sleep past 6:30 on most days.
A few brief observations:
It is all about back room politics and deal cutting in our State Party.
Chelsea Clinton is very pretty in person. She is charming, intelligent and classy. She was the high-light of the weekend.
It is time for new blood in our (State) Party Leadership.
Clinton supporters were, individually very nice and willing to be gracious, collectively they were petulant and acted like spoiled 4 year olds who didn't get their way.
Alternates have way more fun than Delegates.
The size of the venue and the poor lighting means the pictures will probably be awful.
Next time I'm wearing sneakers and a backpack that will will hold food and water. The schedule made it impossible to eat, or even grab a bottle of water.
Molly Ivins is revered and missed.
Obama will be our next president.
You won't see diversity like this at a Republican convention.
