Democrats Make It Official
I guess it was only proper that the Democratic Convention have its own distraction, since the Republicans lost much of their coverage due to Hurricane Isaac. Both could have avoided those distractions by having their convention earlier, but that didn't happen. Maybe they'll both learn from this.
I did however, tune in to the convention in time to watch the roll call of the states. So I was watching when Democratic delegates made it official by re-nominating President Obama for a second term. I have not always agreed with the president, but I'm glad he is again the nominee of the Democratic Party (because frankly, his Republican opponent scares the hell out of me). I'm looking forward to hearing the president's acceptance speech tonight, and I hope he is re-elected in November -- and that voters send a bunch of new Democrats to Congress to help him next year.
