This is supposed to be a slow day, with official convention business delayed for a day. But Hurricane Isaac has been just a glancing blow here, and the politicking hasn’t slowed for the Ohio delegation. Besides the usual breakfasts, the delegation has added a speech by Newt Gingrich at 12:45 today.
There are a few signs of the last GOP president here, as well. George W. Bush’s former press secretary, Ari Fleischer, is speaking this morning and his secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice is speaking Wednesday.
