DNC update

Well its the end of the day and we are exhausted! Our own Diana Nguyen spoke on the Lifetime Future Frontrunners panel earlier today alongside Faye Wattleton, president of the Center for the Advancementy for Women, Marie Wilson, president of the White House project. This blogger was hanging out at the MySpace internet cafes registering voters and making Zac Efron viral (see below).

Ted Kennedy and Michelle Obama spoke on the convention floor this evening and I am seriously depressed I didn't have convention floor passes for today! You can catch their speeches here: But I will definitely be at Hillary's tomorrow!

Besides all the events to go to here, there is plenty of swag to look at! There are Obama tee shirts and pins galore! There are even flip flop sandals and crazy stuffed dolls like the ones below. I cant decide what to buy....

While there were no tornados today there was a "mysterious" package found by the convention center. The bomb squad blew it up and fortunately it was a false alarm. The security here is incredibly I feel pretty safe...fingers crossed for the rest of the week!
