I wonder how scripted and predictable the fictional story of how Hillary is so great will be.
Probably won't use words like server, or Benghazi, or criminal, liar, Ambassador Stevens, Monica, trustworthy, etc.

You're right. They'll probably actually talk about policy. Imagine that.

The "media" fact checks" will of course be a joke.
I think the left wing media will be loving Hillary and Kaine.
I wonder how much the leaks will affect the media BS.

Presumably there's something juicier yet to come. I haven't seen anything particularly notable. Politicians lean on the press. The DNC hates Bernie. Water is wet.

It's notable if you are Bernie or one of his supporters. The CNN article has been updated since I posted the link. DWS is out at convention end. Donna Brazille will be in charge, not Rep Fudge as earlier reported. DWS will speak.

I was talking about coordinating anti-Trump protesters.

As for being bothered as a Bernie supporter, I am one. Voted for him and everything. I'd prefer the DNC was more principled, but this isn't a particularly principled game.

I have little doubt that the RNC tried to do the same thing to Trump that the DNC succeeded in doing to Bernie.

I'd be just as interested in seeing those emails.

While stonewalling someone from your own party is suspect, I don't see why it's surprising at all that Campaign A arranged for protesters at Campaign B's event.

She most certainly did. It was a bold strategy.

In hindsight, Franken was up there for emergencies. Turned out to be a good plan. He was so smooth I venture he was expecting something.

I had to step out, so I'm catching the tail end of Booker... he's positioning himself for 2020.

The Bernie delegates are supposedly trying like mad to get nobody to boo Michelle. Seems to have worked so far.

Likewise, the rumor is Bernie was moved to last so his people will being disrupting at the end, rather than starting in the middle and lasting all night.

They ended up being more sad than disruptive it would appear. Some of the crowd shots were heartbreaking.

Politifact: Democrats never mentioned terrorism on Day One of DNC - POLITICO

Republicans’ claim that Democrats did not mention terrorism or ISIL on the first night of the Democratic National Convention is correct, Politifact said Tuesday morning.

Following Monday night’s speeches, Republicans blasted the Democrats for a lack of focus on terrorism from the 61 speakers.

“Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned "ISIS," "Islamic" "terror," "terrorist," or "terrorism" during the first day of the convention,” Politifact wrote.
Probably a smart move, considering it's not really an issue on the forefront of people's minds lately...
