Hospitality rooms in gear

The speeches ran long tonight, but that hasn't stopped Dems from hitting the hospitality rooms en masse.

U.S. Rep. Obey's suite remains fairly crowded, boasting a buffet-style potato bar and the congressman himself signing copies of his book, "Raising Hell for Justice."

The longest line, however, belonged to Obey's House colleague Steve Kagen, where the line for ice cream sundaes stretched nearly outside the suite's entrance.

The Doyle-Lawton campaign has staked out the bar in the Holiday Inn Ruby's restaurant, with a three-piece rock band playing to a largely subdued crowd.

The Assembly Democrats seem to be the only group with a theme for their suite, which consisted of hanging a Jolly Rodger flag to symbolize their campaign to "take back the majority." ADCC is supplying beer and selling t-shirts.

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold's suite, while initially crowded with delegates seeking beer and sloppy joes, has cleared out since word spread that the keg was tapped.
