UNINTENTIONAL HUMOR….On the schedule listing the speaker line-up for this evening, the entry for “Terry McAuliffe” was followed by the listing “Gavel to Order” before the entry for “Bill Richardson.” It turns out that the gaveling is part of Richardson’s official duties as the chair of the Convention. But it amused this correspondent to think that perhaps the Convention planners had assumed that McAuliffe’s speech would whip the crowd into such an excited frenzy that they would have to be brought back to order. Although Terry did receive a somewhat-undeserved warm reception, his too-long remarks were followed by tepid applause. No actual gaveling necessary.
