Spin Control

WA Dems: Signing in

Washington state Democrats are meandering in to the Spokane Convention Hall for a morning that isn't exactly jam packed with excitement.

They have meetings by the Platform, Rules and Credentials committees that started at 10 a.m., and workshops on campaigning.

Unlike the Republicans two weeks ago, who were neatly contained within the Ag Trade Center and old Convention Center, Democrats are sprawling across the complex with different meetings and events.

There are also cardboard cutouts of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the main hallway, the kind for standing up next to and taking one's picture with.

Could be an illusion, but Clinton looks a bit shorter than real life...

Spin Control is headed for the Platform Committee to see if there are any possible hot spots for tomorrow's convention debate.
