Over the past 3 days, I've been following the Libertarian convention. I have to say it's actually been a lot of fun! Although I've had to get up early, and I'll have to get up at 5 again tomorrow for the last day of the convention. They're calling the meeting to order at 8:30 EDT tomorrow, so that's 5:30 PDT, so yeah that's a bit early for me. Unfortunately, I did miss some of the presidential balloting while I was in church today. I know who was nominated because I saw him give a speech. However, had I not been stuck in church waiting for over 30 minutes, and had I been able to get home a bit more quickly, I probably would've seen the posting of the results. I decided that since I wasn't going to do any 2-party conventioning this year, that I'd follow the Libertarian convention. If you love political debate, resolutions, etc, this is the one to follow. They debate and vote on everything, which can take an inordinate amount of time, but it's fun to watch! They've had their share of technical difficulties with the stream though, (at one point I'm not even sure they new they were streaming,) so there were some things I missed that weren't picked up by CSPAN. CSPAN only televised the VP and presidential debates, and some of today's session.
