And We're Not Done Yet!

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

It's been an exciting week. But first, a few call-outs:

To Matt, who started this site back in 2005, with a commitment to history, process, and accuracy. As someone who read DCW for a long time before having the honour of posting here, I know I speak for thousands of people when I say that the primary process, the delegate counts, and the moment to moment knowledge of Super Delegate endorsements would have been lacking if not for Matt's vision and dedication.

To Matt and Tom for the exemplary, difficult, and time consuming work they did to keep those counts instant and accurate. Because of them, there is a public record of who committed to which candidate when, and what they said when they did so.

To Ed Espinoza, resident Super Delegate, who gave us all a glimpse from the inside of professional politics.

To the pledged delegates who took the time from a jam-packed week to post here with their thoughts, insights and photographs.

And to all of you who read and post comments here at DCW: thank you for your support, your thoughts, and your energy.

But wait - we are not done yet. There are two conventions to cover next week. There is polling data between now and the general election. Stick with us next week as we bring you news on the GOP Convention, the Rally for the Republic, and Hurricaine Gustav, as well as unveil for you our plans for the future.
