Sooooo . . . has anyone reading this ever been a delegate to the Missouri State Democratic Convention before?

Because it would appear that, as of tonight, I am one. And I could use some advice.

How cool is that!?! I don't have any helpful advice for you, but I definitely have a high five waiting (though with my coordination, I'm an awkward high-fiver, so you might want to just pass on that) the next time I see you.

You went? Badass! I saw a link to the information, maybe on Pub Def, and Chris and I were going to go, but I had a writer's meeting for this blog I write for at 8, along with Lost being on, so we didn't end up going.

You should blog about that process; I'm interested to know what it was like.

I have not personally experienced this but I think this advice would apply in this situation:

1. Wear clean underwear

2. Remember your manners

3. Stand up straight

4. Only have one glass of wine

Actually, these tips work in most any situation.

Well, Peter, as of right now I am only a state delegate. That means I am going to the state convention for sure, but once I'm at the state convention, I'll have to compete for a spot at the Democratic National Convention. I mean, if I want to compete.

Which I do.

Apparently, this is the way one gains access to the secretive world of delegates:

1.) Find your caucus location.
2.) Show up.
3.) Give a damn.

Who knew? Heh.

I am stupid. How does this happen, exactly? Do you get picked? How?
