The Convention

I am having a great time following the Democratic convention. However I am disturbed about the way the media keeps trying to find a controversy between the Clintons and the Obama campaign. No matter how strong a statement Hillery makes in support of Obama, the media keeps looking for the slightest little pause or inflection in her voice that might indicate that she really doesn't support him.

Clinton fought a hard campaign although it was a bit flawed in strategy. She has every right to be a proud of what she achieved, but now it's time to move on and pull together in unity. I think that's her intention but the media needs a controversy to sell their stories. I hope America doesn't buy.

And that's my casual perspective on the convention.

Hi Grandpa,
I like your perspective on the convention I've been thinking the same thing. I've also just noticed how outrageous the media is making everything now. I couldn't believe all of the controversy surrounding the Olympics this year. Every event seemed to have some dramatic horror story in the news. I'm just getting sick of seeing it all because it seems like some of it has to be manufactured to be so much more than I really care about.
