Delegates settled into serious pre-convention party mode Sunday afternoon. Aaron, Elisabeth and I walked from the Hotel Commonwealth to the St. George gallery on Newberry Street for the welcome party hosted by Susan Turnbull and Mame Reiley for the Maryland and Virginia delegations.

I'm hoping that two of our national pages, Betthany Rowland and Ben Easter, will post an entry sometime Monday about their meeting with Bill Clinton--their reaction to meeting the former President made our day here in the staff room for the delegation.

Aaron and Elisabeth traveled by bus with many Virginia delegates to the official delegation party at the Hyde Park library. Several members went on to a Boston Pops concert, while others scored tickets to the Boston Red Sox game where John Kerry surprised everyone with a visit. A very, very busy day, with so many delegation members arriving and getting ready for the kickoff of convention week at our first delegation breakfast.

Tomorrow, the serious madness begins ...

Great photos of the convention floor last night. I felt like I was there myself! (So was Tim Russert hanging out with the Virginia delegation?)
