DENVER (CNN) - Nancy Pelosi is the heroine of the last great Democratic victory, the 2006 midterm elections.
Now a lot of voters, including a lot of Democrats, are totally unfamiliar with the achievements of the Democratic Congress — and it’s showing in the polls.
For these rank-and-file Democrats, there’s one source of frustration: they believe they elected this Congress to get America out of Iraq, and it hasn’t happened. That’s why there are protests at the convention.
Pelosi has introduced the first refrain of the convention: John McCain has experience — the experience of being wrong. That’s the refrain they’re using: John McCain is wrong.
This is a tradition at many conventions — the repeated refrain. One of the most famous was in 1992, when Gore was nominated for vice president, the refrain he used was: It’s time for them to go.
