DemConWatch is in the hall

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com

We are sitting in the first row right above the Idaho delegation in the same section as CSPAN's box. These aren't the nosebleed seats that bloggers complained about in 2004. Every seat has a network cable which allows us to connect to the Internet.

There are 30 seats available for the general blogger pool. As of right now only 3 seats are filled including mine.

The blogger lounge which is normally the Denver Nuggets weight room is filled with TV's, network connections and surge protectors.

Besides the people we've seen on stage so far we've run into James Carville, Ken Burns (cool huh?), Barney Frank and Jeff Greenfield.

Looking forward to Mayor Hickenlooper giving the welcome address around 4:30.






You can see where the delegates place their votes.
Each delegation sign has a voting terminal under it.
