But, that's not all that's on the line this Saturday - there's also an election to see who goes to Charlotte to endorse President Obama for Four More YEARS!!!
And that's exactly what I want to do - Road Trip to Charlotte2012, to do just that!
So - why am I running, for National Delegate? Simple - it's about winning in November. By being there in the thick of things I'll be able to help get our winning message out and help energize our base.
For instance, Charlotte, North Carolina is in the heart of military territory. I was stationed at Fort Bragg (and jumped out of airplanes that took off from Pope Air Force Base!) just down the road in Fayetteville. I'm hearing that there will be a BIG emphasis on taking care of America's Veterans (something the GOP is notorious for NOT doing) at the Charlotte Convention - and I'd be honored to be able to report back on all of this, and more!
Now, I'll probably go anyway - I've already signed up and given some dough to "The PPL" (pronounced "the people") in Charlotte; they've got media space for bloggers like Yours Truly, the ol' TwoPutter. And I've already submitted my application for Media Credentials to the DNC Host Committee, which means I'll probably get access to the Convention.
But - and this is a big "BUT" - there's nothing like live blogging and live tweeting from a Convention Floor!
So here's the deal - if you're a Delegate (or, an Alternate that gets moved up and seated) for this Saturday's CD3 Convention, stick around to the very end and vote for Yours Truly, the ol' TwoPutter! That way, you'll get the best in local blogging and tweeting from Charlotte, NC -- right here on MPP!!! (If you're NOT a Delegate (nor an Alternate), but KNOW someone in CD3 that is, give 'em a call/send 'em a text/call 'em on the phone, and tell THEM to vote for Yours Truly, the ol' TwoPutter!)
And If you have any questions prior to the very end o' Saturday's CD3 Convention, just track me down. Or better yet - attend one of the Training Sessions on Saturday - either 9:00 am or 10:00 am - entitled Effectively Using Social Media presented by MN Progressive Project Bloggers Joe Bodell, The Big E, and Yours Truly - the ol' TwoPutter!
Oh - I also started taking iMovie trainings at the Apple store; I'd like to make some YouTubes of the festivities relating to endorsing President Obama for Four More YEARS!!!
And floor access would really, Really, REALLY be a wonderful thing....
For examples of previous YouTubes I've been in, go below the fold.
And don't forget to vote for Yours Truly, the ol' TwoPutter, on Saturday!
"Veterans To Emmer: You Suck!"
"Veteran For Al Franken"
"How VooDoo You Do?"
(that silence at the beginning? Doesn't last long; it's just GOPer Governor Bobby Jindal, who really didn't have anything real to say...and watch the whole thing; you'll never guess who I refer to, at the end!)
"Baghdad Bob Meets Delano Tom"
And don't forget to vote for yours truly, the ol' TwoPutter, for National Delegate on Saturday!!!
