It's getting better
One encouraging sign from the last two days is that the Democrats as a whole are learning to embrace some of the more "out there" elements of the party without the typical fear of being labeled as "out there" as well.
Yes, Michael Moore hasn't been given a spot on the podium. But two years ago I doubt he would have been allowed in the hall.
And Al Franken has been embraced as a major voice in Democratic politics.
The Whoopi and Margaret Cho incidents are evidence that the "quacking-in-their-boots" Democrats have a ways to go. But I'm going to adopt the "be positive" attitude of this convention and put greater emphasis on where the Democrats are doing things right.
