My friend Lamar White is doing a live interview for the social media news site NowThisElections. The interview is in the back corner of the social media room, which is sponsored by Facebook. It’s a large space with lovely mid-century modern-style furniture, beautiful young people, and an open bar. I am sitting in a firm but comfortable couch waiting for him to finish.
The media operations here are enormous. As we walked through the media access areas heading for the CNN Grill / Xfinity Live Pavilion, we saw Anderson Cooper. I got a laugh out of him when I told him, “Donna Brazile says she needs to find a new ‘boo’ now that she’s left CNN” (to serve as interim chair of the DNC).
The Louisiana Delegation is all over C-SPAN. Here is evidence, with Liz front and center.
Here is today’s newsletter. It’s damn funny.
John Bel Edwards signed his delegate ballot this morning. He got a standing ovation when recognized by a speaker at breakfast this morning. It makes me teary how lucky we are to have him.
Today’s speakers are Rep. Jim Clyburn, Sen. Chris Coons, Melissa Harris-Perry, and former Sen. Mary Landrieu. I got a picture with Senator Coons for my collection.
I’m going to be reporting from the first women’s caucus today. Liz will be assembling the newsletter. I hope to be able to go tonight to see Bill Clinton speak. Liz will be there for sure because she’s the delegate.
This is a fun sign. On closer inspection, a lot of these tasks won’t actually change anything.
Change only happens when you organize.
