Hungry and Uncomfortable in the Grand Ballroom

The upside: front and center 30 ft from the podium. Two projectors are casting faded pictures of CNN live over the two balconies here.

I am confident that I'm one of the only non-mainstream photographer here except for a sophomore working for the University of Pennsylvania's daily paper.

Exit polls are beginning to come in and are showing Clinton strong among those deciding their candidate in the last 10 days, an important indicator of who has the momentum tonight. I would equate tonight to the New Hampshire primary night event for Senator Clinton except that the ballroom here is empty apart from the press. I hear doors will open for the small number of supporters that will fit in here at 8:30....still a ways away....
