Celtic Diva's Blue Oasis: Michelle Obama's speech and the photos from the Mon 8/25 Democratic Convention

Michelle Obama's speech and the photos from the Mon 8/25 Democratic Convention

I did this video from the Alaska Delegation on the floor of the Convention. There was no way I could go anywhere else by that point since the MSM pretty much had everything blocked. She had me in tears by the end...especially when she talked about Barack's lack of a father.

Here's a contest for you: name this actor (as I have no idea what his name is). I recognize him from a few rolls but couldn't tell you which ones for sure. I think he was in Officer and a Gentleman. We were outside of the Pepsi Center at the time.

So this older man and his grandson were talking behind me and he was explaining to him about how the Convention works. It was very sweet and I turned around to look...and saw that the grandfather was Dan Rather.

Joe Scarborough appeared to be every bit the jovial, yuck-it-up guy that he does on MSNBC.

Alaska Delegation is right next to Faux News. Why must this be?

David Kellner-Rode of Wasilla was selected to be a Page for Howard Dean at the Convention. Here he is with his mom, Abby Kellner-Rode who has been hanging out with her sister, Rachel Binah...a delegate from California!

Even though it's obvious I'm trying desperately not to blink, I love this picture. Senator Jim Webb is a hero because of what he's done (and continues to do) for Veterans. I got a chance to personally thank him...and tell him that there are lots of Vets up in Alaska who want to shake his hand. I also mentioned that my good friend, Veteran Aviation Outreach's Mo Bailey, would love to take him fishing!

I'll post lots more pictures later.
