Malloy wins a real squeaker!

I'm going to need a couple of days to sort through the 4-1/2 hours of video I shot this weekend, but I can post little snips of some of the more dramatic moments.

The vote between Dan Malloy and John DeStefano was a toss-up, and after the roll was called, at least five delegations contested the results, which meant gathering up ALL the delegates of each town in question and taking a vote in private. This took several hours, during which Malloy and DeStefano worked the crowd.

The video below shows Malloy supporters receiving the news that their candidate won the nomination. Check out the sheer joy exhibited by the Malloy delegates; it stands in sharp contrast to last night's underwhelming reaction to Lieberman's dismal showing, giving up a third of the vote to a relative unknown candidate.

I'm beginning to understand why some people get addicted to politics.

I am a Lamont supporter and would like an answer to the question of how Mr. Lamont would, if elected, treat the "special relationship" the U.S. government has with Israel with respect to the Palestinian/Israeli conflict?
