Trish, Melanie and an unidentified hottie at the closing date of the DNC.

The gates opened at 1 and we weren't sure what to expect. We rode the train from Union Station and waited in a line that wound around for blocks. At least it wasn't too hot and we were given water.

Al Gore's very inspirational speach. He was really there, not via satellite. It's just that photos of folks on the stage are really small and i wanted to show him. I am a big Al lover. He said in his speech that had the election 8 years ago gone differently, well things would have been very different now. You can't imagine how many times I've thought the same thing.

Obama giving his acceptance speech. Both Gore and Kerry seemed to be 'taking the high road' and brushing away Republican accusations during their campaigns. Obama answered them back. I've been waiting fort a Democratic candidate with some backbone.

Below are the media tents. We kept looking through the binoculars for famous people and could only make out Wolf Blitzer and Katie Couric. Oh and Anderson Cooper ahhhhhhhh Anderson Cooper.
