Remember this quote? “That's why we are not running the country because we can't even organize a party.” The whispers are growing louder (as Jackie Wilson would say) that the Democrats’ convention in Boston is on the path to debacle:
City leaders lured Democrats with lobsters, Red Sox games, and the promise of millions in corporate contributions. But in the 15 months since Boston won its first national presidential convention, the enthusiasm so marveled at by party leaders is dissolving into a logistical and political quagmire.It’s a perfect storm of cutthroat politics, hard-nosed unions, security fears, and poor planning. Way to go, boys!
