Look for Tacoma delegate in yellow shirt tonight during Obama speech

Dean Ando sent me a text message this afternoon confirming that he is among a select few (hundred) who will be seated in a circle surrounding Barack Obama during Obama’s speech tonight.

Ando, the Tacoma delegate who went to school with Obama in Hawaii, wasn’t certain if that was the reason that organizers upgraded his credential.

But it probably didn’t hurt.

Ando will be one of about 200 seated in a circle around Obama.

When I spoke with him this morning, the upgraded credential had not been confirmed. A while later, he sent me this message:

“look 4 me in yellow shirt. i got the upgraded creds!”
