      Just heard an update from Janice Dean on the track of Isaac. The storm will be a Cat 1 hurricane as it smacks into the Florida Keys. Isaac will then strengthen significantly before smashing into the Gulf Coast anywhere from Louisiana to Florida as a Cat 2 or even Cat 3 hurricane. That would be a strong storm, and extremely dangerous. Janice says you can expect flooding in all the Gulf states. It looks like primarily a rain event right now for Tampa where the Republicans are holding their convention this week. There is also a BIG new danger to New Orleans because of storm surge..

      There's been several developments on the convention front because of Isaac. The first day of convention activities will be delayed until Tuesday (at least) . Look for speaker schedule changes to be announced today. Florida Governor Rick Scott will not participate in RNC to make sure people of Florida are OK through Isaac. VP Biden has also postponed his campaigning trip to Florida (at least for now). We've got Steve Brown and Carl Cameron covering the convention for us.

      The New York Times has a good piece out today about the more aggressive strategy by the Romney campaign going forward. It's going to get even uglier.
