Rocking and rolling leading up to Ryan

We arrived for breakfast promptly at 8:30 a.m., most of us with four or fewer hours of sleep.

With security, busing, etc. we are getting back to our rooms at 2 a.m.-ish.

Our breakfast guest, former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, was delayed a bit in traffic. The band set up in the room proved to be too much temptation for suppressed rocker, Ohio Auditor David Yost. An accomplished vocalist, guitar and piano player, Dave delivered a stellar rendition of the song Desperado, which he dedicated to Joe Biden.

Although Dave was a very hard act to follow, Secretary Rice set an energetic tone for the day that would end with Candidate for Vice President, Paul Ryan.
