From the Floor: Full House

Sam White
Sam White is a Maryland alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention, who will be blogging from Minneapolis-St. Paul for Maryland Moment. He is from Odenton in Anne Arundel County.

I just got back from the [washingtonpost.com] online chat. I hope that all of found it informative. Jim, Kate and I tried to answer as many questions as possible with the time that we had. I was very impressed with all of the questions.

However, I want to address one that came up. It is always better when you are at a concert then seeing it on T.V. When you are there, you are able to feel the atmosphere, see everything, hear everything etc.

From the television you may see empty seats, people walking around and other things that make it look like it is not a full convention, but that cannot be further from the truth. There is not one empty seat. However, people are walking around to check out the different parts of the convention just to experience as much as possible.

For instance, I wandered to the other side of the hall and got within 20 feet of one of my heroes, George H.W. Bush. So, it is full, there is energy and the convention is full of Americans with resolve and determination to make this historic convention as good as it is.

Sam -- I believe you've mentioned that you spent time in Alaska. From your own wide life experiences -- in that remote region and living in other states (as well as Iraq), do you think Palin's experience governing Alaska will translate to an ability to understand the needs of the rest of the country?
