Today I attended the Massachusetts Democratic State Convention. It was held in Lowell at the Tsongas Arena.
I was a Delegate again for Quincy, but must admit that it seemed much more exciting when we were choosing the nominee for Governor back in 2004. (Correction - 2006) . Maybe it's just me.
Here's a picture of Governor Patrick as he spoke to all of us. It seems like such a long time ago when he was running for Governor. Now all eyes are on the national election and it was definitely spoken about. How the Democratic party needs to heal and come together.
I know this is true, but it's also easier said than done. I don't know that I will ever trust the Clintons again. And I would think that those who were really invested in Clinton's campaign are having a difficult time suddenly needing to support Obama.
The work of the convention was to vote for who would appear on the ballot for Senator. Senator Kerry is running again and is being challenged by Ed O'Reilly, who received enough support to make the primary ballot.
As I was driving out of Lowell, I was stopped at a red light on a bridge. I looked out the window and saw this picture of a shadow of a couple dancing. I thought it looked really pretty against the green with the blue sky above. I had just enough time to pull out my camera and take the picture. The 2008 election season, both state and national, is in full swing now. Let the dance begin.
