Blogging Coverage: Open Thread

I received this e-mail from a reader last night when I returned to my hotel room:

You, and all the rest of the bloggers at the convention, are making the same mistake as the bloggers in Boston. You are all sounding like, "whee, look at me! I'm a hick in the "Big Apple!"

Do some professional reporting. Make us proud!

Agree? Disagree? Let me know your thoughts. Bear in mind, however, that conventions rarely generate "news" stories. The value, I think, is in the background we can provide on candidates, issues, and back-scenes machinery that most people rarely see.

I'm anxious to get a sense of what you think, so fire away.
