Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The Democratic National Convention 2012: We're winning
Watch live video here and join the conversation as we live blog the 2012 Democratic convention

7:34 PM PT: President Clinton will take the stage soon, putting President Obama's name up for the Democratic Party's 2012 nomination.

7:34 PM PT: And here he comes, to Fleetwood Mac and "Don't stop thinking about tomorrow."

7:35 PM PT:
lets be sure to compare bill clinton's speech to george w. bush's. OH WAIT.

7:36 PM PT: "Fellow Democrats, we are here to nominate a president." Huge cheer. "And I've got one in mind."

7:36 PM PT: "A man who stopped a depression, and put us on the long road to recovery. ... I want to nominate a man who is cool on the outside, but who burns for America on the inside." Chills, listening to him speak.

7:37 PM PT: "And by the way, after last night, i want to nominate a man who had the good sense to marry Michelle Obama." Brings down the house.

7:38 PM PT: "I want Barack Obama to the next president of the United States. And I proudly nominate him to be standard bearer of the Democratic Party."

7:38 PM PT: Good, he's good. That is all.

7:39 PM PT: About Republicans: They live in an "alternate universe." Quoting Bob Strauss, Clinton says Republicans want to convince everyone they were born in a log cabin they built with their hands. "But it ain't so."

7:39 PM PT: "We believe that we're all in this together is a far better philosophy than you're on your own."

7:40 PM PT: Since 1961, 28 years of Republican presidency, 24 years of Democratic. "So what's the score?" In those years: 24 million jobs created under GOP, 42 million under Democrats. "There's a reason for it."

7:41 PM PT: The reason? Caring about our fellow Americans, stopping poverty, feeding the hungry — is also good economics.

7:42 PM PT: "I never learned to hate them," Clinton says, "the way the far right seems to hate our president." And just like they hated him, though he doesn't say that.

7:43 PM PT:
Yeah this was clearly a tragic mistake. Good call, Jen Rubin. #DNC2012

7:44 PM PT:
BREAKING: George W Bush just got more ovation than he did at the entire RNC

@speechboy71 via Twitter for iPhone

7:45 PM PT: Clinton is in the process of dismantling the rampant Republican extremism and obstructionism.

7:46 PM PT: President Clinton salutes Joe Biden. Standing ovation.

7:47 PM PT: "President Obama apppointed several members of his cabinet even though they supported Hillary in the primary. Heck, he even appointed Hillary. I am very proud of her. I am proud the job she and the national security have done for America."

7:48 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.
