It made little difference the 98 delegates stood in the hot July sun along the sidewalk waiting their turn to go through security to enter the White House. They were excited as they were to meet the President of the United States.
It was a long wait, but when it was over, they were rewarded with a photo session with President Obama, his encouraging words and hearty handshakes for all. The afternoon brought the first live webcast as the Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates debated. After a short break allowing for dinner, the delegates once again convened where the all important vote was cast to elect these positions. With another live session webcast, Michael Herbert of Arvada, Colorado was elected President and Benjamin Attia of Hockessin, Delaware was elected Vice President.
