Some have observed that the Democratic convention floor has been less unified than the Republican one last week. This is true. But I suspect the Democrats are going to be better off for it. The Republicans achieved their unity the cheap way. Show More Summary

As I write this, Hillary Clinton has not yet made her big speech, and so my sucker bet that no bookie will take: like Humpty-Dumpty, the political glass ceiling will never be put back together again. We're experiencing history. Margaret...Show More Summary
Hillary Clinton gave the DNC's presidential acceptance speech tonight in Philadelphia, to become the first women in history to accept a major party’s presidential nomination. I'm really burnt so I'll just say, she started out slow, then...Show More Summary

I already spilled some digital ink on this record over at the music & beer geek blog I maintain a week or so ago but had the record cranked up loud again today so I figured I would mention it in the club here too. What are you listening to tonight?
