Denver, Colorado

National Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean just announced the selections for the 'State Blogger Corps' to the Democratic National Convention, and TommyWonk was selected to sit with the Delaware delegation. Apparently the competition was pretty fierce:
"Similar to the record-breaking voter turnout our Party has seen during the primary season, the demand for these coveted blogger positions is yet another indicator of the tremendous interest in this historic Convention," said Governor Dean. "The Internet has played a critical role in connecting Americans to elected officials and candidates seeking office. The DemConvention State Blogger Corps will continue to foster this dialogue - in all 50 of our states and our territories too - as we head towards this year's historic election and elect a Democrat to the White House."
My friends at DelawareLiberal are understandably disappointed. Sorry guys.
The cool part is that the state bloggers won't be relegated to sit with the rest of the media, but will be seated with their respective delegations. No perching under the rafters or sitting a huge room with 1,000 other geeks typing away. I'll be right there on the floor for the proceedings.

Update: I'll be going on WDEL with Allan Loudell at 5:24 this evening to talk presidential politics.

You deserve it Tom.

Give 'em hell and if you turn up any stories that offend your sense of journalistic decorum you know how to get in touch with me.

Congratulation! Go get 'em!

If we, at DL, had to lose... at least it was to you. We can live with that! :-)

Congrats Tommy. A real honor, I'm sure. Hopefully this will also increase your credibility in the Leg Hall battle, being recognized by the party like that.
