Roll Call Update

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Doesn't look like there will be a full roll call:

Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama worked out a convention city deal to limit the divisive roll call for president, a step toward an uneasy alliance of former rivals and their still-bitter supporters.
Democratic officials involved in the negotiations said the deal would let a few states cast votes for Clinton before a move to declare Obama the nominee by acclimation.

Still, she told supporters she would cast her own vote for Obama and said, "We were not all on the same side as Democrats, but we are now."

The voting could perhaps end with New York, when Clinton herself would call for unanimous nomination of Obama from the convention floor, Democratic officials said. The officials spoke on condition of [anonymity] while the deal was being finalized. - AP
I still predict it will be Bill who moves to make it unanimous.
