    Convention thoughts from Tom Webb


    Wednesday, September 01, 2004

    Day Three 

    On Wednesday, the Minnesota delegates will finally see why they came to New York City: they're visiting Ground Zero.

    There's been some muttering among Republicans about coming to a city where they're not wanted. And there's some truth to this: you can't walk down the streets outside the security perimeter without seeing signs like "Fascists Repent" and "A village in Texas is missing its idiot." Yesterday, as I was leaving the convention complex, I heard people shouting "Go home!"

    Anyway, the power and horror of the 9-11 site is why the Republicans came, and what they most want to see, I suspect.

    Also on today's schedule is a "Salute to Sen. Coleman," and then tonight's evening session.
