Back to Truman days. We plan on talking to people (this is all about politics, you know), maybe snagging a few interviews about this and that, and generally basking in the warm glow of Democratic Party and organized labor celebration(s) with like minded folks. If you’re attending and you see us hanging around, taking photos, or trying to interview someone, say “hello” and hand Blue Girl and RBH a cold beer. They’ll appreciate it. I guarantee it.
