Barbecue with Howard Dean

Howard Dean invited bloggers to sit for a tailgate barbecue. It wasn't exactly in the skyboxes; instead it was held in the bus drivers tent in parking lot B. He said we should ignore the media chatter about friction between Hillary and Obama supporters.
Dean is all about the ground game; he seems to have an intimate grasp of what's going on in every race in the country. He discussed the opportunity to win one or two electoral votes in Nebraska, one of two states that isn't awarding votes on a winner-take-all basis.
We bloggers may seem like the small fry in the vast media industry covering the convention, but Howard Dean appreciates the work we do. The embedded blogger program parallels his 50 state strategy that has built party strength across the country.
