If you look at the link that TMD posted the other day, you know how much there is to do in Denver next week. As part of the media, there are certain events I simply am not able to attend. Hopefully, some of our delegates will report back on these events. I spent hours culling all of the schedules posted at different sites, organizing them by type and time, calling and emailing to rsvp, buying tickets and confirming the events. This is not complete because there may be schedule changes that allow me to stop by and check out other seminars, rallies and receptions.
So, I'm off to Denver on Sunday. I'm an Obama delegate, representing NC's 4th Congressional district. For months, I've been trying to figure out a way to document my trip that will be fun for me an interesting to everyone back in the Great North State.
I've settled on a video blog idea. James and Betsy have agreed that BlueNC can be the home for the vlog. I'll be contributing to the team effort of BlueNCers who will all be reporting in from Denver during the week.
I'm trying out a new citizen journalism technique I've invented called a "mutual interview." To learn what it is, watch my first vlog post here:
Senator and Mrs. McCain can't keep track of all their mansions.
John McCain could not remember how many houses he owns when asked.
If there is any justice, McCain's failure to remember how many houses he owns will be the "I voted for it before I voted against it" of this election. It should be the touchstone which serves as shorthand for all valid criticisms of the man. It should sink his campaign.
As most of you already know, I have been in Reno, Nevada for the last few weeks helping Barack Obama win the White House. I am officially a part of the big Purple Army known as the Service Employees International Union. But I wanted to give all of you an update on another project I am working on-- Traction Action.
