Hanover, NH -
We are live blogging from Dartmouth College's Silsby Hall here in the upper Connecticut Valley on a dark, wet afternoon. Apparently they have wireless internet in college classrooms these days. I feel so old. I didn't even have a cell phone in college, and correct me if I am wrong but I don't believe wireless internet had been invented.
Today's panel discussion, Reporting on the Primaries: There Has to Be a Better Way to Pick a President, is hosted by Ron Suskind and Linda Fowler and features the following panelists: David Chalian, ABC News; David Mark, The Politico; Walter Shapiro, Salon; Karen Tumulty, Time; and Russ Walker, washingtonpost.com.
It is scheduled to start in about five minutes. Back with more as the talking heads show up to their seats.
In the meantime, a fellow in a seersucker jacket behind me is bemoaning the lack of student presence in spite of some of the greatest journalists in the country. He counted one student - me. Looking around, there are a few more, but not even ten.
