As the Democratic Convention comes to a close I, like TBPTOT, am ready for the weekend. It has been a very emotional experience watching the speeches and the coming together of the two factions of the Democratic Party. CNN did an amazing job covering the event and truly lived up to their slogan CNN=Politics.
Again we are fortunate to have a lot to blog about, so let's get going. This first item was sent to me by DAFan. It seems that some enterprising AC fan is selling Anderson Cooper bookmarks on eBay. The bookmark is 8.5 inches tall and is made of cardboard. If you can't live without an Anderson Cooper bookmark just follow the link.
One of our regulars, Kristien, sent us a tip that Campusvoices had posted an interview they did with Anderson on Youtube. The discussion centers around the importance of young people getting involved in the elections. Thanks for the heads up Kristien.
CNN, in conjunction with the Times Square Alliance, hosted a public viewing of Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-Ill.) presidential nomination acceptance speech. The over 500 attendees watched the speech in Times Square – located at the corner of 47th Street and Broadway. Here is a picture of Anderson on the jumbo tron. To see more pictures of the event check out All Things CNN. Photo courtesy of CNN and photographer: Marvi Lacar. (click to enlarge)
I know at least one reader (Quitty) would want to see AC teasing Wolf about Twitter. My clips tonight are a bit jumpy as we were having the most incredible storm during the broadcast. I thought my power would go out at any second. So forgive the jumps and enjoy the teasing.
At the end of Thursday's convention coverage the Denver panel took a look back at their special memories of the week. I thought it was a fine way to wrap up our coverage too.
Anderson will be on live from New Orleans Friday evening. Let's all say a prayer that Hurricane Gustav comes ashore far from NOLA or any populated area.
Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend and we'll do it all again next week with the Republicans. I really need to figure out a drinking game to get through the Repugs convention, any suggestions?~Phebe
