Well, we’re here! Started the morning with a couple of keynote speakers. The first was an author Colin Beaven. But the next was my friend, George Martin, who began his speech by leading us in a call and response of “No More War!” He actually said “Free Palestine” during the course of his speech. Something you won’t hear at any other national convention ever!
Next we passed the platform. That provided the one and only chance to really work the room in the whole day. There was a major disagreement about a plank dealing with the Electoral College. My friend Asa Gordon has a suit in the federal court system that this plank impacts. I won’t get into the minutiae of this issue but Asa has been working on it for a long time, a long time! And we defeated his request. It makes me sad.
Now David Cobb is talking about the Move to Amend movement. The anti-corporate personhood group. They are working to overturn Citizen’s United. And he just ceded his last 5 minutes so that a statement from Roseanne can be read. I will try to get the text.
More when I can borrow another computer!
