Last night was an impromptu informal Tequila Caucus hosted in the room of my friend Nezua a.k.a. The Unapologetic Mexican and then in my room. Lots of tequila at night and then lots of recovering needed in the morning. I still feel it.
This led to a late start. I got to hear Alan Grayson, the Congressman from Disney World while I ate my chicken sandwich box lunch. Still struggling to move about, I headed up to a mixer with Texas Liutenent Governor candidate Linda Chavez-Thompson. I like to call her the Latina Ann Richards. She is a powerful force to be reckoned with.
I then caught the end of a panel discussion on new web technologies for the progressive movement. We then gathered in the big room to hear Senator Harry Reid. There was a very peaceful and quiet demonstration by a group of DREAM kids to push for the passage of the DRAM Act. Otherwise, Reid’s presentation was incident free. After this I had the great honor of meeting one of my heroes Lt. Dan Choi.
Now I’m headed to the pool and later I’ll go to the closing keynote to hear Senator Al Franken.
Here is a pic of the Netroots at work.
