Well, the big day is finally here – motorcades, flashing lights and snipers have all been spotted. Obama is staying across the street at Loew’s and McCain is nearby at the Marriott. The biggest surprise so far is it’s raining. It’s all, really, so exciting to be in Nashville right now. Here on campus we just wrapped up a forum for students with leading national journalists and Harold Ford Jr., John Geer and John Siegenthaler at the First Amendment Center (video to come), and our pundits are being scheduled left and right for interviews. Check with Belmont for all the news you could possible need about tonight’s schedule here.
Kudos to our Belmont colleagues for organizing what seems to be from all indications a truly stellar event that is making their university and Nashville shine.
