Conventions are not really the time for insightful blogging. The travel, sights, sounds, and people are sort of kaleidoscopic. And there really isn’t much time for actual thought.

I arrived in Denver yesterday, traveling with (among others) Lewis Reed and Rachel Storch. I rode to my hotel with Charlie Dooley. Like most other delegates, I thought that Michelle Obama’s speech was a great introduction of her husband and that their daughters are the most photogenic First Children in decades.

Security is tight here. It took me (with a handful of credentials and some knowledgeable guides) about an hour to pass through the various checkpoints. As a result, the only words of Sen. Claire McCaskill’s well-received speech I heard in person were “Thank you.”

Tomorrow, I will join the Missouri delegation at breakfast with Susan Montee, whose blogging/delegate daughter Amanda I met yesterday.
