For the most part gavel to gavel and I was as happy as a clam. 

The chatter before the four o'clock kick off was nails on a chalk board, and I was way way hesitant about the coming roll call. The first roll call since Jessie Jacksons back in Atlanta in 1988.  I thought the Clinton camp was bending over way to far for the Sanders folks - how dare he not just do what she did eight years ago. And then it started. " The great state of ALABAMA, home of football champions and ....." on and on. Fifty states and DC and territories - all the while Hillary winning, bigger and bigger. 

A little peeved that there was no celebration when she hit 2382, ever thoughtful about the special snowflakes. VERMONT PASSES.... Bernie arose from his Cheshire Cat seat and made his way to the Green Mountain state - coming to them last and Bernie moved to suspend the rules and make Hillary the candidate - with the caveat that his votes be recorded. But I found the whole thing exhilarating , just a big pep rally for Hillary Clinton . 

It seemed to calm the Bernie Bros down and there were no chants and protests in the hall tonight. Love all around.

So many great speeches tonight, capped off with soon to be first husband BILL CLINTON.

Its late and I am sleepy... we will pick this up.
