Denver Convention: It'll Take More Than The Goo-Goo Dolls To Unite Democrats

Our intrepid correspondent from Denver has checked in:

"The press is of course playing up the Clinton vs Obama aspects of the convention. I thought these were largely overblown until last night at the DNC “Party with Your Party” bash featuring the Goo-Goo Dolls (who had the under 30-crowd tapping their feet and those over 30 shouting over the music “the who dolls?). I found myself in a bit of crossfire between some Obama supporters and some Clinton supporters (yes, who did happen to be women of a certain age) who are each plainly still stinging from wounds experienced during the long primary.

Having said that, I know the Clintons and know that they are superb role-players (and I don’t mean that in a negative way at all). Their job this week in their speeches will be to rally their supporters and enthusiastically support Obama – and I believe they will play those roles superbly, and predict that by Friday all the “ Clinton vs Obama” noise will have dwindled to nothing.

We think our correspondent is correct--both Clintons will do a bang-up job. We're glad the press has set up such low expectations.
