    I'm so excited that hte middle class and the poor are represented along with all the people of color, religion, ethnic background, the people of freedom and equality and united for a stronger society. This President has been delt a very bad troublesomed and collapseing economy and huge financial & houseing crisis. He has done an incredable job stopping us from falling into a depression of enormus porporations. I hope this convention is a clear sign he is re-elected and proudly so, to finsh what he has done so we the people never have to wittness and live anymore in history.

    it would be real smart for the democrats not to have any VIP boxes.. just secure ones and easily accessible ones. When I saw people sitting in those huge armchairs it reminded me of events in third world "democracies" AKA family dynastic rule subject to elections under gunpoint. The family and power brokers would sit in these nice sofas whilst the rest of the "cast" would have regular seats or he floor.. don't believe me.. check out the chines events (yes.. China is third world in all parts except for the big cities)

    @Gurgyl: You are correct and my family and I will be there. We met so many wonderful hard working people last weekend when we stood in line for our Credentials to attend President Obama and Vice President Biden's acceptance speeches next Thursday. People in line were all races, ethnic groups and professions. It was a true representation of our Country. We had young families and people in their 70's and 80's.
