Bil, Jerame, and Marti spent the better part of this week blogging from the DNCC in Denver, Colorado. The three queer Hoosiers sent back a lot of posts, a lot more than we usually have, so I thought I'd sort it out and give you all the highlights.

On Sunday, Bil told us that he had shown up in Denver and immediately complained about the hotel. That's our Bil.

Jerame attended the Rules Committee meeting, and provided detailed reporting as one of the few people to actually show up.

Monday was the day of the LGBT Caucus Meeting. Bil summarized it and Pam commented on the speakers and the protests outside, and Jerame posted about the whole first day at the convention, including the caucus meeting.

Bil also posted about the Terrance and Bil described access issues at the convention. Later, Pam blogged about the assassination attempt on Barack Obama, which was foiled early Monday morning.

Tuesday was the day of the LGBT Delegate Luncheon. Bil liveblogged it, Jerame had video, Chuck Wolfe posted his comments, and Marti discussed Barney Frank's comments on the ENDA.

That night Bil attended HRC's "Rock to Win" concert and had a heart-to-heart with Joe Solmonese about trans inclusion in the ENDA. Jerame attended Hillary Clinton's speech and caught the latter part of the concert.

We put up full video of Hillary Clinton address.

By Wednesday, the LGBT programming was over. Jerame summarized the day, including Bill Clinton's speech.

We put up full video of
Bill Clinton
's and Joe Biden's speeches.

Thursday was the day Barack Obama addressed the crowd. We put up full video of
Tim Kaine and Bill Richardson, Al Gore, and Barack Obama.

You know Alex, if you are feeling left out of the convention spirit, you can hop a plane to Minneapolis. I am sure that you can think of a few questions for McCain and his trophy VP pick.
