Convention Follow-up

CDP ConventionI’m working on more analysis of the convention speeches but I think in the mean time it may work better, since the convention is now over, to simply provide you with links to audio and video of the individual candidate speeches as they become available.  I will also provide some links to other blog commentary and analysis while I work on my comments.

For the record, it’s a B*&ch to prepare a post on my Motorola Q, and even more annoying when I try to publish it and lose the entire post.

The blog team over at Calitics pulled together great minute by minute coverage of the convention activities, and even scored some great one on one interviews with candidates. Check out their coverage at Here is their interview with Chris Dodd.

Claudio Gallegos has his posts over at Orange Juice 1 & 2 and Andrew Davey has his reflections up on his blog as well.

Martin Wisckol over at Total Buzz and the OC Register has kept a great running diary of the convention speeches and activities.

The first video I have found up on YouTube is Senator Obama’s here, and Senator Edwards Campaign has an MP3 audio clip of his speech.

It does seem however that I’ve got the picture, that the OC media and blogoshpere hasn’t reported on yet.  When Senator Clinton entered the room for her press availability on Saturday morning, she stepped up to the podium flanked by a praetorian guard of California State Assembly members announcing their endorsement of her candidacy.

, Assembly members Ma and Solorio

As you can see, our very own 69th District Assemblyman Jose Solorio was up front showing his support.

I’ll have more later, it’s been a long weekend.

    Is that 1st District Supervisor Janet Nguyen next to Hillary and Solorio?

    No, that is not Supervisor Nguyen between Hillary and Jose. It is Assemblywoman Fiona Ma.

    I think that what Ralph was trying to say was that all Asian people look the same to him.
