John Deeth Blog: Convention night one: Blogging the Iowans

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

This morning's liveblog subject may be hard to top from the confines
of my living room, but at least I don't have the Secret Service rifle
squad sitting behind me. I'm sure even my most loyal readers will go
to other sources for the big speakers (but was it hard not to feel a
lump in the throat for Ted Kennedy.) Here's Candy Schmeider from Iowa
County as one of the Real People (working mom, precinct volunteer
etc.) slotted in between the big speakers. I can't pull a quote out
but the gist is "Obama inspired me." Have to flip over to CSPAN to
catch it; MSNBC was talking to Chris Dodd about Kennedy. Tom Harkin is
doing double duty: He's signing and letting the interpreter speak, and
he's introducing Jim Leach. Never thought I'd say that. "We Iowans
never genuflect to ideology," he says (now with his own voice) by way
of introduction.
