I’m sitting here at the venue for tomorrow afternoon’s event: the Wadsworth Theater. It is … large. I think around 1500 people are going to be sitting in here tomorrow, judging me for the poor quality of my shoes and my neglected fitness regime.

I hear from the organizers that press attention has gotten nuts. There will be many dozens of press folk in the press tent tomorrow, from lots of national media outlets.

If you watched the debate last night, you’ll have a sense of exactly what we want our event not to be. Wolf Blitzer asked a cavalcade of inane, gimmicky questions designed to … oh hell, what Matt said here.

Tomorrow, we’ll be talking about substantive questions of politics and policy. We’ll see how the media reacts.
