In 2008 -- 2007, actually -- I pestered the DNC early to get credentials for the convention. Then Obama sewed up the nomination after waging a horrendously unfair and infuriating campaign, and I decided that there were better ways to spend my time.
Today I was invited to attend the 2012 convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. It's only a day's drive away, presuming we have the car fixed by then. And presuming that I am not living in the dire straits of direness, as I have been for the past year.
Let's say, hypothetically, that financial matters improve. Should I attend? I have to admit that I'm feeling some curiosity. How many Democrats on the floor will actually admit to liking
Obama nowadays? Will anyone apologize for the crap-fest of '08?
