No particular issue for debate here, but the Democratic Convention is going on this week, a lot of Dopers pro- and anti-Dem will be watching it, and we can have lots of fun discussing it.
My first observation: For reasons I cannot fathom, the DNC leadership has decided there will be no “Bush-bashing” in the convention speeches, and speakers seem, so far, to be sticking to that rule – but there is a lot of oblique Bush-bashing going on. Talk about things that need to be done that (by implication) the Bush Admin has not been doing. There is a lot of general talk of “they.” But nobody ever says the B-word out loud. It seems to be working.
