Ayelet Represents in Denver

Today is the last day for the Democratic National Convention, where Ayelet Waldman has been representing Berkeley as a delegate for Barack Obama.

The Berkeley Daily Planet profiled Waldman last week about becoming a delegate. “I was surprised I won,” Waldman said. “I wasn’t sure who would come. I ran on a slate with a friend, and we asked as many friends to come as possible; they would have to give up a beautiful Sunday. And when I arrived I saw this line, and I went up and down the line of people, campaigning.”

At the convention, an ABC affiliate interviewed Waldman about what it was like attending law school with Obama at Harvard. “He was someone you absolutely knew,” she said. “Everyone knew Barack at law school. It was very clear even then that he had some kind of special gift.”
