    Convention thoughts from Tom Webb

    Thursday, July 29, 2004

    Updates R Us 

    With the Democratic convention coming to a close, it's time for a few updates from Boston.

    Security update: The security here was professional and thorough -- and thus far, thankfully, there's been absolutely no security problem. A huge tip of the blog hat there to the folks who made it so.

    Movie star update: Actor Rob Reiner appeared at Thursday's Minnesota delegation breakfast, and actor James Cromwell appeared with Dennis Kucinich at Wednesday's delegation breakfast.

    The Daily Show
    update: At last report, fellow reporter/blogger Alan Bjerga's segment has not appeared...and who knows, it may have ended up on the cutting room floor. But Bjerga, a multi-media maven, did appear on a NPR panel at the Kennedy School of Government on the subject of swing states. (He reports on Kansas, which is no swing state. Go figure).

    Minnesotans-in-the-spotlight update: Rep. Betty McCollum of St. Paul was one of a group of congressional women who Thursday evening appeared en mass on the convention stage. McCollum gets a special blog citation for being the first elected official to mention my blog.

    Breakfast meeting update: After casting their ballots and returning to the convention hotel about 1:30 a.m., you have to admire (?) DFL delegates for gathering for a 7:30 a.m. breakfast meeting that lasted more than three hours.
