WA Dems: General milling about

Political conventions include a significant amount of down time.

Time between Workshop A and Workshop B. Time for lunch. Time between Workshop C and the general discussion on being a good progressive.

Time for the pre banquet reception.

Time between the pre banquet reception and the banquet, which, at 6:20 p.m., is where Washington Democrats are at their state convention.

Gov. Chris Gregoire and Sen. Patty Murray are among the featured speakers. But speakers don't start speaking until the delegates take their seats, get served their salad course and (probably) their entree.

Spin Control 2.0 will post up on the speeches when they occur, and hopes to have some audio and video later this evening.

The Spokesman-Review's political team keeps a critical eye on local, state and national politics.
