Before grabbing a seat for President Obama’s speech, Palm Springs’ own Greg Rodriguez sent us another round of updates from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
California delegates started today with a breakfast that featured U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. As an added bonus, Rodriguez reported that “MC Hammer’s in the house. ”
Rodriguez then headed to a series of caucus events that focused on women’s issues as well as lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual rights.
He was able to spot First Lady Michelle Obama and Second Lady Jill Biden at the various morning events.
“I feel like I’m on the Hilda Solis tour today,” Rodriguez noted about seeing Solis repeatedly. “Third time, but she has changed up her speech.”
Interestingly, Rodriguez noted that this was the second day that anti-Obama rallies had made traveling difficult. But he notes that they’re not Republicans, but rather protesters from “the far left.”
