  •  symbolism AND pragmatism (none)
    I'm on board for all of the symbolic uses of having the DNC in NOLA, and I'm on board for the economic help it may provide. (I know there's considerable disagreement on that, but I'm putting that discussion on hold for now.)

    I think more than anything, though, having the DNC in NOLA can be proactive, positive symbolism - not just pointing out the Bush failures there, but reinforcing the idea that the Democrats support NOLA's comeback. Which is something that I'm not convinced the Republicans truly support.

    -8.25, -6.26 ain't "schadenfreude" if the bastards deserve it. this is infidelica...
