dnc day 2

My photos from the second day are up and viewable. I've just gotten my daily credentials across the street from the Boston Public Library ["Why every day?" I asked "For security." they said, end of discussion] and am enjoying fast Wifi while I can. Though they tell us they've added a second access point in the Fleet Center, I remain skeptical. Today I hope to go on the floor, say hello to the Vermont delegation, and maybe check out the alternative festivities happening on Boston Common. Posted by jessamyn at July 27, 2004 01:47 PM

How about that Clinton Speech!

"Send Me!"

Have you seen his new website?

Nice pictures, great commentary. Good work!

The "security" there sounds more faux than real, though. Why bother to go through all of these steps and then not require an ID to get in the door? That's just dumb.

Clinton's speech will go down as one of the best in history. He has taken the party to an entirely new dimension...even topping his own legacy.

How lucky you are to be present. Capture every detail for those of us cheering from home:)

Great blog and your pics are great. Its also nice to know there is a librarian at the convention trying to make sense of it all.

Come on down to the Wisconsin delegation and say howdy!

Same applies to all other bloggers, of course!

I am by no stretch of the imagination a fan of Bill Clinton but, I was very impressed by his speech. Definitely one of his finer moments.

Shared your pics with friends throughout the day. Give my regards to Vermin Supreme if you see him, (he's usually behind a megaphone).

huh. so the free speech zone is a cloaked box/tent behind chain link fences??

how ironic that they keep those people penned up, and then have such a ridiculous hologram of security for "normal folks" at the same time. we live in a creepy time.

how can the Dems talk about a "better america" while keeping critical thinkers penned up in a box far away from the "discussion"?*

who will it be better for?

*hint: it's not really a discussion!

Wow, I couldn't possibly have realized that Clinton's speech would be topped by Kerry!

I hope to see the bloggers out there (at BOTH conventions) paying attention to the topics that get ignored by the newshandlers and arrangement specialists, out of a pathetic and trembling fear that something unscripted might happen.
