More Election Tidbits
For some real time convention blogging, check into what Jeralyn of Talk Left is posting (start here and scroll down). The excitement and energy is palpable. She's even posted a photo of the mysterious Atrios who turns out to be a quite handsome fellow called Duncan.
Over on the American Street, two Oregon delegates are blogging about what it's like to be a delegate from a swing state in Boston. Check out Jenny's and BeckyG's posts for the first day of the Convention.

Or is it just another way to soak up more money from the have-mores?
