1. Wow. Excellent.
OK, so the gender balance is mandated by the DNC (which I disagree with, but oh well). But the rest of the diversity isn't -- and I'm glad to be a member of a party where people who don't look like the nominee are in the stands, not just standing behind the nominee for the photo-op.

2. CBS spun this as the African-American count is well below population %
I wonder if they will do the same calculation for GOP delegates?
