Post Convention Update: As you may know by now (and check out my "Joe & Me" video located in THIS POST if you don't know) I never got to ask the Senator a question. But if I did, the only question I could remember (while I was nervously quaking in my boots) was Leisureguy's: The question I want to ask: "Will you support the winner of the Democratic primary for the US Senate?"
Leisureguy, send me you email address and I'll arrange to get a copy of the DVD to you when I get it done...probably sometime before Xmas, but I can't say for sure!
Thanks everyone for your suggestions! It felt like I was there representing all of you, and your support is appreciated.
Holy shit! I didn't even realize that today is "Connecticut Bob's" ONE MONTH ANNIVERSARY! Wow, and what a month it's been...and I think it's only gonna get better. Awesome!
Tomorrow begins the Democratic State Convention at the lovely, giant-steel-drum of a building Expo Center (wonderful acoustics in there, believe you me), starting at 6PM. I'll be there early, and since I'm going to be covering the event with my video camera, I thought it would be a good idea to open the blog up for requests on what you'd like to see covered there.
Of course, as a responsible journalist, I do have an obligation to make every effort to cover the important speeches and votes. But I also want to document some of the behind-the-scenes action that rarely makes it onto the news.
I'm compiling a list of questions to ask, should I get an opportunity to talk to any of the candidates or party bigwigs. What I'd like to hear are YOUR suggestions. Yes, this is interactive politics at it's best!
As an incentive, I'm offering a free DVD copy of the convention footage I shoot should I get to ask your question. I know, I know...it's a great prize. I'm sure it will double nicely as a beverage coaster.
So, feel free to post suggestions in the comments section; if you sign on as "anonymous" be sure to sign your comment so I know from whence it came. Sometime after the convention (if I actually get any suggestions) I'll decide who wins the DVD.
Try to get your entries in by noon Friday, as I probably won't have computer access at the convention. I may be able to check the blog early Saturday, depending on the schedule, but don't count on it. It's gonna be a busy two days up in Capital City.
Democracy marches ON!
