The Bull Pulpit
Politics is such a bizarre game. Our intrepid correspondent Cathi Crabtree’s traveling partner, fellow delegate Martha Hilderbrand, tells us:
Pro Hillary signs that are made to look hand made by supporters are being handed out by the DNC.
Bernie’s not the only one who bawled tonight in Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. Our Cathi Crabtree joined in the hankie-fest while Bill Clinton spoke of his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democratic Party’s 2016 nominee for President of the United States. Here’s CC’s report:
“Going to cry!”
BTW: I caught a glimpse of one of the protesters outside the convention hall carrying a sign that read “A Vote for Hillary Is a Vote for Trump.”
I love Bernie; a lot of his most rabid fans, though, I can do without.
Bernie’s words last night gave me the kind of goosebumps I haven’t felt in years. Indulge me, as I list a few great lines here:
“Not just bombast, not just fearmongering….”
“Hillary Clinton understands….”
“The greed of the drug companies must end.”
“…our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.”
“…the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party.”
Sanders, Making A Point Last Night
Say what you will about the primaries and the battle between Hillary and Bernie for the soul of the party, the Democrats are awfully goddamned lucky to have both of them in the tent.
