DENVER — Melbourne resident and former Air Force medic Mike Wilson will take center stage at the Democratic National Convention this afternoon to talk about veterans affairs and his support for Barack Obama.

Wilson, 33, an Iraq war veteran separated from the Air Force in 2004, was selected for the honor after meeting with Obama over dinner a year ago. Three donors to the Obama campaign were flown to New Hampshire and were allowed to ask the candidate anything they wanted. Wilson said he was impressed with Obama’s sincerity.

The roll call is a sham. It doesn't match the primary results at all.

The Democratic party is a piece of shit, BTW.

Someone is blogging it live. I don't have C-SPAN.

The DNC is trying to show unity by crushing Hillary and denying her the votes she got. FUCK DONNA BRAZILE. I am going to phone bank for McCain.

Exactly.

The PUMAs I know at the convention mentioned that delegates were being strong-armed--funding for congressional races was being threatened, etc. I had no doubt they would do this. No matter what you think of Hillary Clinton, you have to give her kudos for sitting through this sham and keeping her chin up.

Orange is the symbolic color of revolution and is often worn as a sign that there has been election fraud --like in the Orange Revolution in the Ukraine

I know, but there were rumors that Arkansas was going to walk out.

No matter. Hillary did her job last night. They can't blame her if Barry loses. They CAN blame this roll call and the infantile need to "rub her face" in it. I have never voted Republican in my life, but I am going to sign up for a McCain phone bank. It's San Diego--there should be one here.

I had to watch it. I had to know if the party was going to do right by Hillary after her speech last night. They have not only NOT done her right, but they have treated her like absolute crap.

Not only am I voting for McCain but I will work for his campaign. And it is the DNC's own fault.
