Woodson surprises delegates

Packers cornerback Charles Woodson told the audience he blew off advice from a former Packer about how much he'd enjoy Green Bay.

"In my mind, I was not coming here," Woodson joked about his free agent signing with the team. But with that former Packer, George Koonce, also in the audience, Woodson introduced Gov. Jim Doyle as one of many people he'd been priviledged to meet since coming to Wisconsin.

"Even though some of you may not know why I'm here, you know why you're governor's here," Woodson said in his surprise introduction to the convention. "You know where his passion lies, and it's the future. And the children are the future."

Woodson praised Doyle's work on education, health care, and job creation, before joking, "While he's doing that he finds time to balance the budget."
