First night at the convention

I found out that I'm still connected enough to get credentials and
managed to get into the hall for the festivities. Caroline Kennedy was
superb (just as I'm writing this she walked by with her kids!) and
there was not a dry eye in the place during her uncle Teddy's moving
speech. As compared with my previous convention perceptions--the
national conventions I've watched on TV and the Texas state Dem
convention I attended as a delegate--it all seems much more REAL. Sure
it's all choreographed, but it's choreographed reality rather than the
empty process and glossy infomercial you expect from these events.
