One of the Iowans who’s a delegate to the Democratic National Convention says the convention has for the most part served to unite and rally the party behind John Kerry. Linda Nelson of Council Bluffs says though, there are some who haven’t warmed up to the concept. She says when they went through the roll call to nominate Kerry state-by-state, she says there were still a number of states that had delegates that still pledged their support to Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich. Nelson says those who favored Kucinich should’ve listened when he spoke to the convention. She says Kucinich gave one of the best speeches to unify the party and put his support behind Kerry. She says those people who supported him weren’t listening. Nelson is the president of the state’s largest teachers union, the Iowa State Education Association.
