Welcome to Philadelphia…

 Dilworth Paxson Chairman Joe Jacovini made an appearance on stage in his role as chairman of the board of trustees of Drexel University.  As part of the pre-debate welcoming committee, Jacovini said it was fitting for a presidential debate to be held in Philadelphia, just blocks from where democracy started.

Gov. Ed Rendell also gave a welcome speech, talking mainly about his proposed health care plan.

Mayor John Street isn’t in attendance. DNC Chairman Howard Dean said he was sick. His son Sharif is in the audience, however, as is Philadelphia Democratic mayoral candidate Michael Nutter. More celebrity sightings to come… and of course some debate action as well.
