Citizen: After the spectacular roll call vote (I'm a sucker for the real party business) and equally spectacular sunset, the celebrities and luminaries descended upon the convention arena. In a bizarre game of "animal, vegetable, or mineral," it was "celebrity, politician, or media type?"
It's harder than it looks! Let's just say last night you would have seen me shamelessly tailing Aisha Tyler, Jurnee Smollett (of The Great Debaters) Alan Cumming, Joe Scarborough, Al Sharpton, and Gayle King. I will say I'm singularly responsible for Aisha getting a seat last night. The usher asked me if it was her (after seeing my not-so-subtle camera) and then promptly let her in. Though Liberty may take the prize for celeb-hounding. . .
Liberty: There wasn't a seat in the house during President Clinton's speech, so I watched with a large group around one of the many flat screens throughout the place. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just happened to watching at the same TV! After the speech I got a chance to break it down with SF Mayor Gavin Newsom and his wife Jennifer. We all agreed that nobody can talk economics like Bill Clinton. And after it ended, Obama surprise and all, I caught the Clintons leaving their seats, and giving hugs to Jesse Jackson! Check out the view from behind the scenes in the video below.
