The convention was meticulously planned, calculated to showcase party unity and support for the candidate, who will, according to what is now being said, be ready on Day One. Careful attention was given to the speeches as well as to which color pant suit Hillary should wear. Reaction shots of the former President kvelling and repeatedly mouthing, "I love you," we can only presume were directed to his wife.
There was, however, a serious oversight. Neither of the Bicoastal Broads was invited to the Convention Blogging Tent. Was this a deliberate affront? Were we remiss in not organizing our readers to demand we be a presence at the convention? Regardless, we now ask you to throw your support behind the bloggers who are there. It's not about us; it's about you. Read The Huffington Post. That's what we're going to do.
I'm trying not to feel insulted. If the Clintons and Obamas managed to put their tensions behind them, shouldn't I find a way to forgive? If Obama and Biden could unite as a team, shouldn't I find a way to forgive? If Hillary can hang in with a husband who'd turned the Oval Office into Motel 6, shouldn't I find a way to forgive? (Pause here for applause and waving of signs). Do you think I've been watching too many political speeches?
