The Democratic National Convention got underway and on television yesterday in Charlotte, N.C. I do intend to watch what I can, but I couldn’t tune in last night. Could anyone report on what transpired? What themes do you expect to see? What arguments or what feelings will the Democrats use to keep Americans from concentrating on the usual determining issue, that it’s the economy, stupid? Are you finding their appeals at least rhetorically effective?
