BBC World News will have extended live coverage of Kerry's speech at 0200 GMT. :|

You know, yesterday they covered the story of Doctors Without Borders leaving Afghanistan. Except their British and so they always call it Medicins sans Frontieres and they always pronounce it well.
Those British...

"You said the Republican Party was the party of Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. It is true that Mr. Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, after which there was a commitment to give 40 acres and a mule.
That's where the argument, to this day, of reparations starts. We never got the 40 acres. We went all the way to Herbert Hoover, and we never got the 40 acres.
We didn't get the mule. So we decided we'd ride this donkey as far as it would take us."

I liked when she said Dick Cheney needs a time-out. :P

DNC Roll Call Is About Bragging Rights
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., began the nomination process Wednesday night hours before roll call was to start. "I would like to nominate John Kerry to be the 44th president of these United States," she said, eliciting a cheer from the crowd.
...
At the end of the night, the Democratic National Committee secretary's office tallied 4,255 votes for Kerry and 37 votes for Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich.
...
It wasn't a clean sweep for Kerry. Some delegates cast their ballot for Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich.
``We wanted to support the principles of Kucinich - ending the war, universal health plan for all Americans,'' said Barry Freeman of Chapel Hill, N.C., one of four North Carolina delegates who voted for Kucinich. He said the four would back Kerry in November.

"Mr. Kerry received more endorsements Wednesday from retired military leaders, among them the former chairman of the Joint (Military) Chiefs of Staff, General John Shalikashvili."
That sounds like a Georgian name. neat.

"The delegates also heard from Ret. Marine Lt. Col. Steve Brozak, a lifelong Republican who changed his party affiliation and is now running for Congress in New Jersey's 7th District against Republican Rep. Michael Ferguson.
Brozak said he became disillusioned after being deployed to Iraq in the spring of 2003 when he saw "how our military is so overextended," and later when he returned to see veterans not getting the benefits and treatment they deserve.
"The Republican Party left me behind," said Brozak. "

"After the speech by Edwards came the time-honored roll call of the states. The key swing state of Ohio was moved ahead in the alphabet and given the honor of putting Kerry over the top. By the time Sen. Jon Corzine cast the 116 delegate votes of "the beautiful and bountiful Garden State of New Jersey" for Kerry, the arena crowd was thinning out. "

Al Franken fires up Maine delegates

It seems impossible to find a state by state break-down of the roll-call vote. Nobody seems to care.

Time for food.
