Noted At The Ball
Big applause for the Vilsacks who were pretty low key most of the day near as I could tell.
A couple might have beens: Denise O'Brien and Pat Deluhery.
But most noted by observers: Chuck Grassley got a reasonable amount of unity applause, but Steve King walked across teh stage to dead silence. He was quite lucky to get by without boos. One wag suggested he should have been introduced en sepanol. OK, that wag was me, but the salsa band was singing in Spanish early in the evening making me wonder if they'd gone ahead and repealed English Only during the day.
