A winning convention is one who has the candidate's back. A candidate who wins has the unwavering support of his convention delegates. The most effective combination is when the convention is holding up the candidate, not a candidate having to hold up and hold together his convention.
A winning convention is one who cast all 5,200+ delegate votes to its candidate and confirms with no nays.
A winning convention is one whose delegates say 'nay' against having it all to end.
I've been around a minute in this life now and most political party conventions have been stuffy pageants with balloons filled with hot air.
And speeches forgotten the next day.
Maybe because the stakes have never been higher than they are today has caused the DNC to retool their conventions. Whatever has happened, they need to keep this going.
The Democrats of the past have been afraid to go 'all in'. They didn't know the difference between being loyal vs. being in lock-step. We fell in the past because we wouldn't or couldn't be united when it really counted.
I didn't know who this bunch of folk were, but I like them much better! A governor telling Democrats to grow a backbone? What?
A former President calling out the opposition for having some kind of
balls brass for trying to call out the current President on something they did themselves? Huh?
Speech after speech of we aren't going backwards; we are moving forward?
Got a cold?
Whoop ass speech after speech calling out the GOP on its lies, obstructionism and dirty voter suppression tricks?
What party is this again?
Simply put, this was THE best DNC Convention EVER. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, take your bow.
