Convention Photos and Videos

Today's batch of pictures is a bit smalll . Delegation_2Worse, Flickr's on the fritz and the slideshow application's not working.  Instead, click through to the Flickr page where you can see them all, including some text descriptions.

I also wanted to link to the major speeches given thus far in the convention, in case you missed any of them:

Since we're headed to Invesco today, I'm not taking the laptop (no wi-fi), so this will probably be the last post until tonight at the earliest.  No matter, you still have our Twitter feed to keep you abreast of the activities.  And I will take the camera--tomorrow's batch will be more impressive.

    Hi Jeff, is it true that the delegates had to stay in their hotel rooms and do a soviet-style vote? I've read that several places but cannot imagine the DNC doing such a thing. How did the vote go down?

    I've also read about protesters - mostly outside so you may not know, who are being arrested and given no rights. Are you hearing about that? Its hard to tell what is going on from a distance - tho it might be just as hard in the crowd.

    Wow! That must be very exciting and a lot of fun! I'm looking forward to Senator Obama's speech in a few minutes.

    Wow - Oregon does have much better seats. From the state you could easily see "ORE" above the sea of signs.

    inbf: I don't know how they do the voting. Since I'm not a delegate, I wasn't in the room. On protesters, I can't speak too much to it--all the protesting I've seen has been disorganized and low-key. There were plenty of very high-profile places to protest that would have been right in front of broadcast cameras (the place was crawling with media), and yet they seemed to avoid areas where the delegates and media went when they weren't in the Pepsi Center.
