    he can only stand and applaud. Passing on to be the elder is not always a gracious process.  Clinton seems to be doing it well.

    For me, as an older person, it was wonderful to see the younger people having such a huge part of the convention ... the Dreamers, the ones just running for congress, the kids and babies learning the political process.  Every time the camera panned to Jesse Jackson, he was alone and looked unhappy or befuddled.

    But that is simply my take ... from afar and with no specific knowledge of what he is doing and lots of memories of who he used to be.
