Mock Con: The nominee

And the winner is ... Senator John F. Kerry.

Kerry took the nomination on the first ballot. It would have been Virginia's turn to cast their delegate votes when Kerry garnered the necessary majority, but the W&L Virginia delegation followed tradition and allowed the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to cast the delegate votes that put their Senator over the top. Senator John Edwards was nominated for Vice President via an unscientific voice vote.
