Live from Toronto, it's the Ontario Liberal Party Convention! #olpldr

I'm firmly entrenched now in blogging headquarters for the Ontario Liberal Party convention. I'll be spending the greatest part of my time uploading pictures to the Progressive Bloggers main site, and offering witty commentary on Twitter and on this blog.

For my initial thoughts - we have two strong front runners in Kathleen Wynne and Sandra Pupatello. In a one-on-one contest, they'd split the vote easily. But, we have a delegated convention and that means some attention needs to be paid to the middle of the pack contenders. Those delegates on a second ballot can sway the leadership vote in unpredictable ways.

All Ontarians need to pay attention - Ontario Liberals are not just picking a leader, they are also picking Ontario's next premier.

Your intrepid blogger plans to spend some time getting to know the delegates, the alternates, the media, and the bloggers. What do they think? What are they planning? Where can I get the best swag? :)

As I tweeted, I'll be in their hospitality suites, tweeting all their secrets.

Stay tuned. It's going to be a long couple of nights.
