Buckhead Delegate Meets Celebs in Charlotte
Bob Gibeling is attending the DNC as an alternate delegate and sharing his experiences with Buckhead Patch.
One of the fun aspects of being at the DNC is spotting media personalities. One night I sat next to TV political commentator Joe Klien while I watched the exciting Georgia Tech game. Then I spotted Bob Shiefer , a veteran national TV correspondent. Yesterday I met Gavin Newsome, the Lt. Governor of California. He recently began hosting his own show on Current TV, the network started by former VP Al Gore.
A few minutes ago I chatted with former GOP national chairman Michael Steele. He is a frequent commentator on MSNBC and very gracious man. I good naturedly showed him the credentials around my neck from when I attended the Republican National Convention in 1972. He looked closely and gave me a warm smile , surprised that I had saved this old photo ID . (I wonder if I could use it to vote.) Michael remarked on the journey I have come. Yes indeed.
