Denver, CO — A funny thing happened on the way to the Democratic National Convention this morning. Since my flight was too early to take BART, I called SuperShuttle. The van pulled up at 6:45, and who’s sitting there– Clinton Delegate David Serrano-Sewell. David and I, along with Obama Delegate London Breed and Markos Moulitsas , were on the same flight into Denver.

David has made some news in the past weeks as a vocal Hillary supporter. He helped spearhead an effort to force a roll-call vote on the Convention floor. Fox News, clearly looking to instigate a fight in Denver, booked Serrano-Sewell on Neil Cavuto .

Joking around with David over coffee, I told him I had signed up to be an Obama Delegate to keep people like him from stealing the nomination!

Despite secret Clinton Delegate meetings that are already underway, it ain’t going to happen. Even Serrano-Sewell seems to have a soft spot for Obama. His whole family is Obama supporters and his mother is here in Denver, an Obama Delegate.

Walking around downtown I ran into a group of Republicans with McCain and “NOBAMA” signs. In the group of about 30, there was one African-American. I couldn’t help myself, so I congratulated them.

More from Denver later…
