|I move for lunch
||[Mar. 15th, 2008|01:23 pm]
So for the last half hour, the topic discussed at the convention was what was available for lunch. The chair even suggested a vote on Broccoli. Broccoli got a split voice vote. Mostly they were killing time for the credentials committee to finish seating delegates.|
Oh and I got credentials, at the very last minute. The convention -- due to no shows and the like -- usually seats everyone that shows up. It was unprecedented that more people showed up to serve as alternates than were needed to fill in for delegates not present. First the Obama chair selected delegates based on precinct, then they drew names from a hat, and then they drew more names when they discovered a pile of unallocated credentials. exciting, no?
Count right now is Obama 131, Edwards 73, Clinton 71. Second alignment begins.
