The New York Convention was amazing! Standing in Times Square and visiting the Statue of Liberty were highlights outside of the convention. But I think the highlight of the convention for me was the keynote address by conservative Democrat, Zell Miller of Georgia. He said in that speech, “I barely recognize my party anymore…Today, it’s the Democratic Party that has mastered the art of division and diversion.” I don’t think much has changed since 2004.
