    Convention thoughts from Tom Webb


    Monday, July 26, 2004

    How many Democrats does it take... 

    The convention organizers in the Democratic National Party seem to be having a little trouble with math.

    When the head of the Minnesota DFL Party, Mike Erlandson, went down to the convention floor on Sunday for the first time, he was surprised by what he saw.

    They "didn't have enough seats" for the Minnesota delegation.

    They were about 15 short, he said.

    You wouldn't think that getting the right number of delegate chairs would be a problem, considering the party has had four years to count.

    We'll know in a few hours, during the opening session, whether this problem has been fixed -- or whether some of Minnesota's DFL delegates will be leaving Boston with sore feet.
