Guess who’s going to the Democratic National Convention?

Yup! I’m super-excited that I’m going to be headed to Charlotte to experience my second presidential convention and my first one with the Democrats. (I covered a Republican Convention back in my broadcast journalism days, but I won’t tell you which one, as it would totally give away mt age!)

I’ll be writing about my experiences here and at my Babble Voices column, so I hope you’ll check them out and let me know what you think would be interesting to hear about that the more traditional outlets aren’t focusing on. But as I’m getting ready to go, I’ve been talking with PunditGirl — an almost seventh-grader now — about where I’m going and what a presidential nominating convention is.

And that’s when I had to figure out how and when I could ever break some bad news to her.  What kind of news?  That’s what I’m mulling over at PunditMom’s Spin Cycle on Babble Voices.
