Democrats Approve Platform
Posted by David Postman at 5:39 PM
Democrats approved their platform with very little debate and very few changes to what the platform committee proposed. Some delegates were clearly unhappy when a majority voted to end debate on the platform. And some didn't agree when a voice vote was said to have approved the platform.
The changes were mostly minor. For example, in the foreign policy plank delegates eliminated the call for the United States to leave not just Iraq but military bases in adjacent countries.
There are still resolutions to consider, including the ones calling for impeachment of President Bush. It's already been a long day.
"Stay hydrated," someone just announced from the stage. (So far no warning about dangerous pink liquid being passed through the crowd.)
