Democracy In Action?
They had a floor vote at the Democratic National Convention yesterday, to insert language both recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel (a decision usually reserved to, you know, the country that decides where its capital is), and ... oh, something about God in American life, I don't know. What I do know is that the, uh, candidate in question was under some pressure to re-insert the language, supposedly to throw the opposition off guard. (Oh yeah, they'll be reeling from this one alright!) Anyway, the passage of the language required a two-thirds affirmative vote -- from the floor.
Yours truly paid very little attention to that other convention, and paid even less to this one. The video clip shows why.
