Viewers of the Democratic National Convention were impressed Thursday night with a powerful speech by retired Marine Corps General John Allen, who joined the crowd in a chant of “USA! USA!”

It was fortunate that there wasn’t a repeat of the embarrassing “No more war” chant that threatened to drown out former CIA Director Leon Panetta the previous night. Actually, there was, but the crowd by this point in the convention had been assured that it’s OK to chant “USA!” to drown out the anti-war crowd.

Just follow your hearts, and if that fails, stick to the script.

After a rough opening day filled with hecklers, weren’t the Democrats in the hall declared unified on Day 2?

Who expected that at the DNC? So many conflicting emotions to process.
