It was a swell time. I took the metroliner down to D.C., signed in, got my credentials, then went outside to photograph a group of "Deaniacs" hanging outside the building waving signs. While I was there, Dean pulled up, shook hands, and was finally trundled off into the building by security. I followed and jumped in the elevator with them. I missed Nader's coming into the building but got up front for the sound check with a whole bunch of other press photographers. Photographed the debate, went to the NPR party afterwards, on the 6:00 train, then over to the Afif gallery for the opening. Ran into Evi and Kim on their way to Ulyanas.

Nader talks with reporters after the debate, including a ten year old from Scholastic News who got to the point and asked the question everybody wanted him to answer, "Do you think John Kerry would make a better president than George Bush?"
