What a morning at the IL delegation breakfast at the Denver Marriott! Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. talked about reconciliation and bringing the IL democratic party together. He pointed out Congressman Bobby Rush and jumped off the podium to reconcile.
Watch this video of IL Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias speaking at the DNC tonight. Well, it's a video of his prompter. And watch Alexi just barrel past the 2 minute limit and tack on a couple more. Watch out DNC, Alexi plays by his own rules!
Last night, Marlowe's steakhouse was the scene of the IL delegation welcome party. It was a 4-6 pm open bar party on the 16th street mall. It was the first official IL party and, boy, it did not disappoint. Ok, maybe it disappointed a bit. No one made a scene and the press wasn't let in.
