It looks like Hillary is losing her shine with the DNC.

Her campaign can spin all day long but they understand trajectory as well as anyone else. That's why the DNC is floating Biden and Gore trial balloons. So, her support is and has always been: 1) Yellow Dog Democrats, 2) the DNC Party Machine, and 3) Wall Street. Yellow Dogs and Wall Street will continue to back her but when 1/3 of your support is sniffing elsewhere AND your trajectory continues in a sharp, downward motion, you're in serious trouble.

My local news just covered Bernie.

(Channel 30 - ABC) This is the first I've seen of any local coverage about Bernie. They talked about his rise in popularity and the NH polls They played a small clip of Bernie in L.A. where he's saying that the millionaires and billionaires can't have it all. (One of my favorites.) It seems the difference, at least locally, is that NH poll. They also mentioned Hillary's email issues.

Things are getting very interesting.

Pictures! (Dial-up Warning)

OK, I've FINALLY had a chance to breath (and sleep - remember sleep?). Here's what I took:


This is waiting in line. I got there 3-1/2 hours early as I wanted to be near the front. As you can see, I was!



One of the 2 local news trucks:



The line at first.



St. Bernies for Bernie: LOL



This is when I first sat down. You can get an idea of how "yuge" this stadium is:











This is a shot of the audience turning on the Flashlight app in their cameras all at the same time:







And after that I became so engrossed in the speakers I forgot to take pictures! LOL! (This is why they don't let me operate a camera.)





Where did Bernie Sanders go after the L.A. event?

Why out to the "overflow," of course, to speak with the people who couldn't get in! I had NO IDEA this went on. Just found this on FB.

That was fucking AWESOME!

A sea of young people OF ALL RACES! Really great, effective speakers including Bernie's new press secretary. They had a young Hispanic woman talking about immigration, they had a nurse talking about today's endorsement by the NNU, several others and, finally, Sarah Silverman talked a little bit and then introduced Bernie.

My ears are still ringing. I've got LOTS of pictures but it will take me awhile to d/l them and post them here. There's a great picture of a St. Bernard wearing a Bernie T-Shirt so it was St. Bernards for Bernie. LOL.

This is L.A. so there was gay, straight, transgendered, you name it, all groups were well represented there. I'm telling you the young people have absolutely taken over this campaign and, speaking as someone who has been doing this forever, I'M TIRED and y'all need to take over now. But I have your back.

ETA: So, I haven't been able to figure out how to get the pictures off the iPhone onto DU yet (new phone) and I'm getting ready to drive back home but AT SOME POINT I will get the pictures up. Probably closer to tomorrow morning.

L.A. Attendees check in here.

I'm here already. People are looking lining up and abc channel is here.

How Super Delegates Work

This is from 2008 and is mostly about Clinton vs. Obama but the system is the same. (Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything more up-to-date that wasn't someone's poorly-written blog.) Btw, THIS is how the DNC can, literally, steal this election.

There's a reason my FB page has a photo of me when I was 3 years old -- it was the last good photo taken of me. LOL! Alright, so this just got posted on FB and don't say I didn't warn you:

Video of the local new coverage from Wednesday night.

Someone posted this on our Bernie FB page. (Sorry about the commercial at the beginning -- warning, the commercial is LOUD.) You can see the crowd pretty good as well.

CHECK IN HERE to Report on your Bernie Sanders Event

Post pictures if you can.

We counted 170!

I have pictures but I'm too damned tired to post them right now. PLUS we got local CBS and NBC news crews out. Unfortunately, I don't have TV so I won't see them.

How did everyone else do?

ETA: Here's a link to our FB page with one picture earlier in the evening when people were still arriving:
