The Delegate's mailbox

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

I am waiting for something really cool to arrive in my mailbox before the convention but not sure it will happen.

A week or two ago I wrote about things I have received about the convention through email and mail. The mail box has been filling up and I thought I would share with you below some of the items I have been getting. Follow this link to my original posting and check out what I was getting a week ago at
