Dems Name Mordecai Their Donkey

Just in time for Purim, the Democratic National Convention Committee this week announced the official mascot for the 2008 convention: a donkey named Mordecai.

The mascot was chosen by a panel of judges at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. Mordecai and his handler, 12-year-old Sophie Herzog of Fairplay, Colo., will take part in ceremonies leading up to the August convention, which will be held in Denver.
