LIVE from Denver: Guests at the Big Tent

The Big Tent in Denver has had the honor of hosting an unbelievable number of guests today. As DiAnne posted earlier, Governor Schweitzer stopped by this morning, but we've also been fortunate enough to be joined by Senator Dick Durbin, Joe Trippi, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, Texas Senate candidate Rick Noriega, and our very own Governor, Chris Gregoire, among others.

It's been a fun-filled morning and afternoon.

I had the opportunity to ask Governor Gregoire some follow-up questions about her reelection campaign, adding on to our interview with her at Drinking Liberally, recorded a couple of weeks ago before the primary. We'll try to get that audio up as soon as possible as part of our podcast.

The Governor is pretty thrilled with how well she did across the state in a low turnout, stale primary election. And she should be.

I also had the pleasure of meeting Michelle Gregoire, one of her daughters, who is working on the campaign and staffing her mother at events. It's wonderful to see the Governor's family so committed to her campaign.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt is scheduled to come by tomorrow, and we may have other surprise guests drop in and pay us a visit as well.
