The Scramble Goes To Philly

Barack Obama

It's the final day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia -  and the ride has been almost as wild as last week's Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Cleveland brought us a plagiarzed speech for Melania Trump, a public walk-out by delegates from the "Stop Trump" movement, Ted Cruz's public rejection of Donald Trump, chants from the floor to "Lock [Hillary] her up,"and a rambling seventy-five minute acceptance speech by Donald Trump. 

The Democrats were not to be outdone. WikiLeaks released almost 20,000 emails that included plans by the DNC to undermine the Sanders campaign, the DNC Chair abruptly resigned her post, Sanders lost control of his supporters, and Donald Trump encouraged Russian hackers to find Clinton's lost emails. 

And then...President Obama spoke.
