In an effort to be positive

I'm going to try to spin this...

Are they going to let the BS protesters get it out of their system today?
They have Ben Jealous and Bernie speaking today. Are they going to let it calm them down and have it all be bad on day 1 so that they can move forward tomorrow?

If all the negativity is on display today, if it's as bad as it gets today, then can they manage expectations better?

1. They've been "getting it out of their systems" for 6 months

And here we are for more of the same.

2. I'm expecting things to calm down after Bernie speaks tonight.

He will make their options clear. The holdouts will sleep on it, then maybe be more united after that.

3. those very same delegates will still be on the floor

Unless the most disruptive get their credentials pulled I doubt they will.stop. Bernie tried this morning and he was booed by his own delegates.

5. it wont matter. The next 4 nights can be fine and unified, there's gonna be people on DU

who are going to spend the entire time going on about "Bernie and his supporters must BE PUNISHED!" Take it to the bank. You're gonna see more threads about the last hour than anything else.



my take? Fine. They made asses out of themselves for a little while, maybe they're done. let if fucking go. It's not Grant Park in '68. They seem to have shut up now, that's what I want.
