Let’s Talk About Conventions, in This Week’s Open Discussion

What’s struck you, bored you, moved you, or made you cringe?

This week: The Democratic National Convention. On Monday night, Michelle Obama stole the show. Last night, AOC got 60 seconds of airtime, and Bill Clinton should have had none. Tonight, we hear from Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris. What’s struck you, bored you, moved you, or made you cringe? Are you ready for that infamous gun-toting couple at the Republican National Convention next week? If your personal story had happened to dovetail with a major party’s message, what would your own convention speech include?

The Open Discussions are here for commenters to connect with one another outside the fast-moving, sometimes contentious article pages. It’s a place for online friends to share a joke or newcomers to get their feet wet. As always, our discussion topic is a suggestion, not a command, so feel free to (civilly) talk among yourselves.
