Love Was in the Air

The music blasting over the Democratic National Convention hall last Tuesday afternoon urged delegates to "start a love train," and it seems some people took that to heart. On Wednesday, a Florida county Democratic chairman, Rick Minor, landed a speaking spot at the delegation's morning caucus and used it to pop the question to girlfriend Jessica Lowe, the Tallahassee Democrat reports.

And on Monday, just after Sen. Edward Kennedy spoke, one Arizona delegate proposed to another, according to The East Valley Tribune. Ruben Gallegos, the delegation's floor whip in charge of coordinating the sign waving, signaled to delegates to lower their Kennedy signs and raise his special signs, which said "Marry me, Kate" and "Will you marry me?"

Both Kate Widland and Jessica Lowe said "yes."
