Opinion: Democrats Offer A Positive Vision For The Future At Convention After GOP Offers Only Attacks

Sitting in the Time Warner Cable Arena last night I was struck by how different the Democratic National Convention was from the Republican event last week. Unlike the Republicans in Tampa, Democrats focused on the fight to preserve the middle class and the American Dream.

The Democrats have no star power and pale in comparison to the Republicans’ star-packed convention in Tampa.
