Clever and competent reader MrsK was gracious enough to send me a link to the video she captured of Mitch Daniels unexpectedly dropping by our Meet and Greet and addressing the crowd. When this was happening live, I was having a total out-of-body experience, and didn't really absorb what he was saying, but now that I've played it back, I am completely overcome with weepy glees.
Of course, that could also be due in part to just unbelievable exhaustion, but it's mostly just good ole happy delighted joy.
So if you weren't able to make it, here's our first speaker, who was without question the best surprise of the evening.
THANK YOU, MrsK!!!!!!
