Delegates Must Face Full Agenda


Roman, Dave, The Florida Times Union


Delegates face some tough choices at the Democratic National

Convention.

Take tomorrow's opening night, for example.

There's the Reggae Victory Splash, Comedy Central's Democratic

National Convention Blowout, Late Night Blues, the All-Star

Salute to Democratic Governors, the Tribute to Sen. Bill Bradley

with Chicago Bulls coach Phil Jackson, Geraldine Ferraro's

Birthday Bash, Bob Torricelli's Birthday Party and the

Clinton/Gore Reception Honoring African-American Elected

for today's 10 a.m. session on Politics and Policy: Overview of

the U.S. Election Process.

Of course, they could skip that and take the Lakefront Bicycle

Tour at 10:30 or sleep in later and attend the Bucktown Art

Festival at 11 a.m.

A master schedule lists competing events throughout the

four-day convention. Delegate meetings compete with receptions.

Seminars compete with recreational activities. And it all

competes with the convention itself.

"Look when the times are," Brady said. "I'll be on the

convention floor."

NOW, A FIRST-HAND REPORT: It won't be hard to keep track of

Jacksonville's Lisa King at the Democratic National Convention. …
