Ten random things: August 28

Ten speakers at the 2008 Democratic National Convention:

  1. The Honorable Amy Klobuchar (U.S. Senator, Minnesota)
  2. The Honorable Miguel Del Valle (City Clerk of Chicago, Illinois)
  3. The Honorable Jim Doyle (Governor of Wisconsin)
  4. Dr. David Gipp (Member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe; President - United Tribes Technical College)
  5. The Honorable Barbara Mikulski (US Senator, Maryland)
  6. Tammy Duckworth (Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs; Helicopter pilot and wounded Iraq war veteran)
  7. The Honorable Madeleine Albright (Former Secretary of State)
  8. Beth Robinson (Stay-at-home mom from Hampton Roads, Virginia)
  9. The Honorable Tim Kaine (Governor of Virginia)
  10. Susan Eisenhower (Granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower)

Number of people on this list met by members of the Heaton family: definitely two (nos. 1 and 5), probably three (no. 3), possibly four (no. 6). And maybe others Of the one I've met, Barbara Mikulski, I can say this: she is extremely short. I'm not that tall, but I am to her what Dr. J is to me.
