Dems make Schultz honorary Wisconsinite




The convention gave MSNBC host Ed Schultz a standing ovation after Chair Mike Tate recognized him.

Tate said too many in the national media treat Wisconsin as flyover country, but Schultz took time to talk with cops and firefighters to get a true feel for what's been happening here.

Tate then gave Schultz a foam cheesehead and made him an honorary Wisconsinite. Schultz put on the foam cheese wedge to the delight of the crowd, which chanted his name.

Tate told the crowd Schultz could not give a speech because of his contractual obligation to MSNBC. But Schultz took the microphone briefly.

"I don’t think I’ll be breaking any rules by telling you how much I love you. Thank you very much," Schultz said.
