Today's convention pictures feature our fave: Teddy Kennedy's daughter Kara caught buying a $25 Obama T-shirt. We caught her before the night's tribute to her dad and as she shopped at the Obama kiosk inside the Pepsi Center run by Margo Mertaugh (on the right). Other features include some great hats, the special Donkey Donut shot, Katie Couric, the CNN gang, and the recycle ladies, Cle Symons on the left and Florence Jester on the right.
