Phil's event with Howard Dean went really well. I have videos from pretty much every speaker except Mike HOnda. SOrry Mike! Sorry for the shaky video, my arms got tired! ;) It was a great event, really quite exciting. The full video blog is on the flip.
The event began with Art Torres, the CDP Chair, introducing all the union leaders and elected officials in the audience. Art then introduced the Mayor of SF, Gavin Newsom:
After Gavin, Mark Leno came on the stage and got everybody fired up. He described some of the ways Arnold Schwarzenegger has hurt the State of California
Mark then turned the stage over to Howard Dean. It was obvious that Howard was still quite popular in San Francisco. He even made a quip that if California was first in the primaries that maybe things would have turned out differently. Perhaps that's true...
Phil then came on the stage and rallied the crowd by sharing a story of his daughters' campaigning for the former Vermont governor during the 2004 NH Primary.
