Delaware gets front-row seat

DENVER, Colorado (CNN) - Delaware is moving up to the front row.

Seating for the state’s delegation was moved Sunday from up in the stands of the Pepsi Center, site of the Democratic convention, to the front two rows on the floor of the arena.

Delegates from Delaware will now be seated right next to the podium where their senator, Joe Biden, will give his vice presidential nomination acceptance speech on Wednesday night.

    Obama's choice to put Biden on the ticket says that he knows he doesn't have the experience or gravitas to be president. :)

    It also says that he cares more about winning than he does about unity in the democratic party or in America!

    It also says that he has no intestinal fortitude because he didn't have the courage, humility or wisdom to select Hillary!

    Obama never! :(

    Don't waste your vote! Vote for John Mccain 08 and Hillary Clinton 2012! :)

    I personally didn't know J Biden until now, but so was everyone else.
    However, beside his sound gift of wisdom, Barack Obama has been called young, inexperience. Now, he's got a man whom by the record is more than experience. What now can be a reason for which any sound American will refuse to for him he was voting for his country' best?
    Whatever you do, please don't any racist people let hold back the American progress we've been dreaming!
    Vote Wise!

    So Delaware (3 electoral votes) is more important than MI (17 electoral votes) and FL (27 electoral votes).

    Pelosi is an idiot.

    Print that CNN.

    Interesting – Florida and Michigan delegates should be serving drinks in appreciation for being there let alone be up front
