From the Floor: On Camera and Online

Chrisi West

Chrisi West is a Virginia delegate to the Democratic National Convention who will be blogging for Virginia Politics from Denver. She is from Alexandria, in Fairfax County.

Chrisi participated in a live online discussion to answer questions from readers who have been following her adventures in Denver

Chrisi West: Hi everyone! It's great to be here!

Denver: Hi. I work a little up 16th street from where you are. From the outside looking in, it seems that the protests and general confusion have been well-managed, and there has been relatively little disruption. Is that the case?

Chrisi West: That is definitely the case from what I see on the ground. After the convention recessed last night we passed a few protesters but everyone was respectful and controlled - just stating their views. And there's definitely nothing wrong with that!

One-liners: I'm not a Hillary supporter, but even I thought her "sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits" line was a funny bit of self-deprecation.

Jeffrey D. Richardson: I definitly agree. I thought that Senator Clinton connected last night very well and showed a bit of her humorous side that many haven't had the opportunity see. She can be witty and funny and that's is a part of why her supporters love her.

Chrisi West: That was definitely one of the best one-liners of the night. I thought Senator Clinton's speech was fantastic, and will go a long way to helping to bring the remaining Clinton delegates over to supporting Senator Obama if they weren't already. It's just another reason why her supporters love her and connect with her on a personal level.
