    NOTE: This thread is in the CDZ so we can discuss the Democrat Part Convention in the CDZ spirit.

    The Democratic Convention was gaveled to order this afternoon and is already beginning to gather steam..

    This thread is for comments on the process, the dynamics, the theme, the tone, and the speeches of those scheduled to speak. Also for what those watching hope to see result from the convention.

    So are you watching? Will you watch some of it? All of it?

    I don't plan to watch any of it this week.

    I will be picking up on specific talks later on.

    I will watch some, probably not all. I am curious to hear what former President Clinton has to say. His speech is being billed as a closely guarded secret amidst suggestions that even Obama and his people haven't seen it and don't know what is in it. (And of course that includes speculation that they are not happy about that.) So it's anybody's guess whether all that is hype and just suspense bulding or whether it is all the real deal.

    Bump. Come on Democrats. The gavel has whacked the podium and the speeches are in full force at the Convention. Surely somebody is watching? Besides me I mean.

    Watching it. Not very impressed.

    Kal Penn was praising Obama for his friends getting jobs.

    Lots of anger from these speakers.

    Lots of lies about Romney. Not a surprise.

    Lots of mindless chanting.
