Had a great time at the School. I recommend it highly if/when they have it next year.

That's Ron dropping by to give us a little pep talk. It worked.

Big hot room, lots of very cool people.

Mike Rothfeld knows his stuff; and made it all very interesting and exciting, even as he fulfilled his promise to "offend 100% of you".

Is your wife at the RNC *now*?

There are many posts/news articles (see my posts in the last 24 hours) that the GOP platform and the nomination of McCain may be happening NOW (in the next 2-3 hours).

Simple quorum required of those in attendance (and many hurricane area delegates may have gone home on McCain's chartered jet!)

Are RP delegates/alternates at the RNC??

They aren't going to nominate anyone today.
Rumors seem to be flying but I don't think the GOP will pass up an opportunity to grab some more attention, even as they try to walk the "compassionate conservative" tightrope.
I think McCain will be nominated later in the week.

Gustav has changed *EVERYTHING*. McCain has even hired a jet to fly area delegates/officials *home*.

I think the hour recess at the RNC was to prove delegates in attendance (to challenge RP ones??). Everything seems to be needed submitted in writing.

NOTE: Per DP posts, the GOP couldn't/wouldn't even answer when the nomination vote would be:eek:

I've posted this numerous places on RPFs:

The one time RP supporters are out of contact is when things are changing rapidly.

The GOP platform and nomination votes will be [tomorrow/Monday] *NOW* around 2:30 CDT.

A simple quorum of those in attendance is all that is required.

RP delegates *must* be there to have any impact at all.

For crying out loud STOP already. The delegates are here, they are on top of things and very much in the loop as to what is going on with the RNC.
