“Two candidates have qualified to have their names placed in nomination,” Nancy Pelosi explains to the delegates.

“The first candidate to be nominated tonight will be Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.” The applause is only scattered—many of the delegates aren’t here yet. The nominating speeches begin.

UPDATE: Pelosi’s announcement of the nominating process for Barack Obama is met with enthusiastic applause and a chant of “Obama, Obama, Obama.” The first speaker identifies himself as a registered Republican, and is still getting crazy cheers.
