OK, we all know that this Saturday, DFL CD3 Delegates (of which I'm one) are going to endorse a candidate to take on - and BEAT! - Erik Paulsen, R=Bachmann.

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!

"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!)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
