This is the new Democratic Party. Anybody representing our military – former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Gen. John Allen, and an medal of honor recipient – were shouted down by anti-war sloganeering. Anything having to do with law and order or national security is anathema or of little concern to what is now the mainstream of the party.
I think Americans watched this, saw the reporting, and took note. If Hillary Clinton gets a bump out of this convention, I’d be very surprised.
And all of this has to effect the way she conducts herself in office. These are her people, whether she wants them or not.
This one was particularly dramatic. Look at what happened to former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who is respected on both sides of the aisle. He couldn’t even make his speech.
