It’s been a while since I did a late night thread… so here goes…
John Daniello, the chairman of the Delaware Democratic Party on Obama – Biden: “Seeing them together now, they’re a natural team,” he said. “I think they’re going to do well.”
Florida and Michigan delgates to be seated with full voting rights: Dems give Michigan and Florida full voting rights.

Go Ted… This is awesome news: Kennedy plans to address DNC! Scott Lehigh reports in the Boston Globe:
In a development that is sure to bring the house down, US Senator Edward M. Kennedy is expected to attend the Democratic National Convention, most likely to deliver a speech tomorrow night.
Kennedy is battling brain cancer, and his doctors are said to be worried that his treatment has compromised his immune system and that attending the convention could put him at further risk. Still, the senator has recently told people that he has a speech written for the convention and that he badly wants to come, pending a final medical consultation.
Buzz has built among Massachusetts politicos that Kennedy would come, and today a source close to the family confirmed that he had made a decision to come.
“He is definitely planning to be here,” said the Kennedy family confidant. “The whole Kennedy family will be in a special section. It should be quite moment.” […]
A Kennedy speech is usually a convention highlight, and Kennedy revels in an address that elicits a regular response from the crowd.
Given Kennedy’s illness, this year’s speech should be especially poignant.
The fun and excitement all starts Monday… Stay tuned…
