Barack Obama's acceptance speech is only hours away. Don't forget the watch parties planned tonight; see the full list here. Red State Rebels will have an open thread for tonight's speech, as well as a slide show of pix from the Basque Center party in Boise later tonight. (P.S. If you are taking pictures at any of the other parties statewide, send me one or two at juliewrites at yahoo dot com, and I will try to include them.)
Check out these latest dispatches from Denver: Gary Allen, Gail Bray, "Adam & Eve," Debu Majumdar, and ReBecca Suits of the Idaho delegation have all gone on record with YouTube to say why they support Barack Obama. Maj and Justin StormoGipson blog about this morning's meeting with Obama's chief of staff, Boise High grad Jim Messina. There's much more on the IDP's daily convention page.
Update 2:07 p.m.: Tara Rowe of The Political Game will be live blogging tonight here at RSR while I'm helping with the Basque Center shindiggery. Please join Tara with your reactions to the big night at Mile High. (And also read Tara's reflections on the end of the Hillary Clinton campaign. A snip: "Hillary Clinton did something last night that few politicians are willing to--she put aside her own ambitions, her own dashed dreams for the good of her party. In my book this is the very definition of statesmanship.")
And what might some Google ad buys reveal about John McCain's VP pick? McSame has been coy on the issue all day, saying he hasn't decided (even though he's supposedly still making the announcement tomorrow), but he may not be talking straight. Heh. Imagine that. (h/t Sharon)
