You earned it, baby
The thing that surprised me was how long it took. I'd predicted a quick Madia endorsement today; in fact, it went eight ballots before Terri Bonoff withdrew. The convention was pure heroin to the political junkie; afterwards I picked up my son and we drove over to the Hopkins VFW and briefly joined the post-convention Madia party. It was a hard-fought battle that culminated in a classy concession. Please click on the photo above for my Convention Day slide show, or click here for the Flickr set [same pictures]. Wow!
