Welcome to the Show. Or, At Least, the Grounds on which the Show is being Held.

Finally got set up at the debate at around 2. They put me in some random press room, at least 5 minutes' walk from the building where the thing is actually happening. Of course, I'm the only jackass here.

2:13 - They kicked me out of the building I was in to do a security sweep. So I spend like 40 minutes outside in the heat. The CNN/Youtube Debate: Feel the Excitement!

2:20 - Crushed hope of the day #1, of which there will surely be many: I have a press pass, but not the press pass that gets you into McCallister Field House, the site of the debate. DE-NIED, as they say.

2:42 - They let me back in the building. Still no one here, so I steal a look at the place-names in my press room. Uniformly lame, except a guy from Playboy. Sweet.
