The view from the front row

DENVER -- This was the scene in the Florida section on the convention floor minutes ago, before Democrat Hillary Clinton began her much-anticipated speech:

Democratic congressional candidates Raul Martinez and Joe Garcia beaming from their recent moment on the national stage.

State Rep. Arthenia Joyner juggling two Blackberries to try to get election results back home.

Plantation Democratic Club President Bill Kling, wearing his World War II garrison cap, standing next to another delegate wearing a giant Uncle Sam top hat.

State Rep. Dan Gelber heading out to the nosebleed seats where the West Virginia delegates sit. Apparently, it's roomier up there.
