This is the first video kicking off our coverage of the Democratic National Convention and events leading up to it. This one was a $2,300 a plate fundraiser for Barack Obama at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, CA, Sunday August 17th, 2008.
As part of the event, an Obama Rally was held outside of the hotel. Two, perhaps three people with bullhorns were leading the crowd in “Obama” cheers, and one I recognized.
Christine Pelosi, daughter of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the author of the well-received book “Campaign Boot Camp” a guide to successful campaigning, as well as a California Superdelegate supporting Senator Barack Obama.
I asked Christine about having Hillary’s name placed in nomination and she skillfully ducked the question as only she can do. Instead, she said she was looking forward to the voting process, and reminds us that she’s been a delegate since 1996.
Then Christine informed me that the California Delegation will have its party Wednesday Night at the Denver Museum of Natural History. So, if you’re coming to Denver and are a Californian with political connections, that’s the place to be.
