Convention Updates

Okay. I'm here, and I'm posting.

Parking was no good, but the credential-getting process went just fine. There is a huge barbecue outside--apparently put on by the Lieberman campaign. Also, it seems like each campaign invested in a big RV.

Need to conserve my laptop's batteries... I'll keep checking in with more as it happens.

Update 6:05pm

Okay, it took me a while to find a place to plug my laptop in, but I managed it (dead battery). I stopped at the Lieberman table to chat before heading in. They were young and enthusiastic, although they didn't want to comment on the Lamont campaign at all.

I'm seeing a lot of Lieberman supporters. A LOT of Lieberman supporters.

Hey, I saw Wolf Blitzer! Neat. The national press is here for tonight, I assume, and will be long gone tomorrow. Maybe I can steal one of their spaces in the media corral.

The corral, by the way, really is just that. There are no visible entrances or exits, except maybe one near the fire door. They, at least, have power.

Someone is practicing banging those thunder-stix together. Lieberman supporters. Interesting.

I'll keep updating. Watch this space. Hey, wasn't it supposed to start at 6:00? Huh.

Update 6:08pm

Okay, people are being told to take their seats. The floor is starting to fill up.

I'm going to start a new thread.

I look forward to reading what you see, hear and hey - who's got the better food? :)
Any preliminary haggling for DeStefano/Malloy or Liberman/Lamont?

Cya at 7:00. I might be cranky depending on how fast I can find a parking space.

DeStefano/Malloy is probably dead in the water. Malloy rejected it.

I'm seeing lots of supporters for both gubernatorial candidates. Seems pretty even.
