My Hat Is Off To The Planners Of The Democratic National Convention.....

It is both informative and entertaining and well choreographed. I'm blown away by the videos, the Trump moments, the speakers, the entertainers and how well scheduled it is. The other thing that I am blown away by is how the speeches are so well coordinated with the signage that is being displayed during their speeches. That really takes some planning and coordinating with the speakers and the delegates in the audience. It almost seems that all the speeches are coordinated to say just the right things at the right time in theme with the topic of the convention for the day. It's almost like the same person wrote all the speeches and the speakers were just there to deliver them. So I congratulate the planners, directors and producers. They have done a wonderful job and the DNC is running circles around the RNC.

I had this funny thought that this was all Hillary's doing - in that just like young women have a wedding planning book - that Hillary had a presidential planning book. Since she was a young woman just getting into politics that she kept this scrapbook and planned out her campaign, the nominating convention and the inauguration.

Please forgive me I've been sleep deprived lately due to a health issue and I get silly.

I think though that this would make a great SNL skit.

So What Type Of Controversy Are The Cable News Networks Ginning Up Today For The DNC?.....

They got to have some controversy to talk about after last nights great rollout of the Convention. Who are they after today?

Is Trump Tweeting Tonght?....

I curious as to if he's watching the DNC and what he has to say.

What Is So Wrong About A "Progressive Political Revolution" For The Dem Party?....

Hillary won the nomination and she is the nominee of the Dem Party. We have a Hillary/Kaine ticket now and they need to beat Trump in November. So I can't understand why the supporters of Hillary here on DU are still fighting the primary battles and dissing Bernie and his supporters. The primaries are over. Hillary won. We need to focus on Trump now and beat him and the Repugs. Please channel your energies and hate to Trump. And you Bernie supporters that can't get over the fact that Bernie is not our nominee - get over it as well. We all need to move on - but there is no reason why we all can't come together and support a "Progressive Political Revolution" to take us into the future.

I've heard all along that Hillary and Bernie weren't that far apart with their values and platforms. Now we come to this convention and we have the most Progressive Democratic Platform in the history of the Party - and yet we still see this animosity between the Hillary supporters and the Bernie supporters.

So I ask - "What is so wrong with a "Progressive Political Revolution" taking the Dem Party into the future. We have a good chance now of winning the WH and the Senate. I believe we can make in-roads in the House as well - and there is a good chance given the dis-unity in the Repug Party with Trump as their nominee - that we could even win back the House in November as well.

But going forward through the next 4 years and beyond - what is wrong with supporting a "Progressive Political Revolution" to achieve all those things that the Repugs have stonewalled against over the last 8 years and more?

The Dem Party is the Progressive Party. Let's - for God's sake and the sake of the future of America - get together and join the "Progressive Political Revolution" so that our children our grandchildren and their children can live in a country that is for everyone and not just the 1%'ers.

Let's Say Trump's Russian Ties To Putin Are Proven Beyond Reasonable Doubt.....

by some journalist or a government agency - what do you think the Repug Party would do? Would they rescind Trump's nomination? Or would they just let nature take its course and let Trump still represent their Party?

The MSM Especially MSNBC Is Going Out Of Their Way To Rabble Rouse At The DNC.....

they are itching to show unrest and dissension in Philly. They are harping on the DNC e-mails and trying to create a storm - when in my opinion it has blown over a long time ago.

Bottom line I believe if the MSM had their choice as to whom they would like to win the Presidency - it would be Trump. I think they see Trump as their ticket to high viewership over the subsequent 4 years. That's what it's about to them - viewership = money and profits for them.

So What Was Moring Joe's Post Mortem On Trump's Acceptance Speech?.....

I can't stand that show - but am really curious as to how Scar is spinning it.

"There Can Be No Prosperity Without Law And Order" .....

This quote from Trump's acceptance speech scared me the most.

Hillary Needs To Do Something To Shake Things Up.....

Listening to Trump's speech tonight it sounds like he is going to do all the things that the Repugs stonewalled against for the last 8 years. As such - Hillary won't be able to mount a traditional campaign against him by running against the Repugs- because Trump is not your typical Repug nor is he running on a typical Repug platform. He's changing the feel and approach of the Repug Party.

You also heard Trump make a play for Bernie's supporters to support him. As he says that Hillary is a Washington insider and represents establishment politics.

So I believe that Hillary has to be very careful in her VP choice. She can't pick an establishment white male politician - like a Kaine or Vilsack - because it will look too traditional or familiar or establishment Washington insider like.

She needs to pick a VP that will give a different and pushing the envelope look.

That's why I believe her best choice for VP is Elizabeth Warren. Or she should choose a younger Latino male like Julian Castro.

Bottom line when you see her standing on the stage at the end of the Dem Convention - the picture that needs to stick in the minds of the American People is that it is different and doesn't look like something out of a past time in American or Democratic Party politics.

He's Going To Do All The Things That The Repugs Have Stonewalled For The Last....

8 years.
