A Few Words From Phil
So I've had a full range of experience watching the speeches. The first night (as an alternate) I was in the nosebleed seats and couldn't leave the seat for fear it would be snatched up. The second night, a very kind delegate gave me his floor pass so I could be on the floor for Hillary's speech--and it was phenomenal! Last night, on the way to the the convention hall I was passing a bar as Maine was announced for the roll call. So I dashed in to watch John Knutsen report for Maine. I bumped into some great folks from Virginia, Massachusetts and Colorado and I ended up staying there to watch the evenings events. It is probably the only time I'll ever have a chance to sit at a bar, watch great political speeches, and have the whole bar join in cheering!
