And now it's the Democratic Party's turn.

No apparent bump came for Robbedme and Eddie Munster Ryan from the convention. No apparent dip came for President Obama.

What I would start with, for the Democratic Convention:

Get all the hardhatters, caterers, electricians, sound stage personnel, and every blue and white collar working class person who helped build the facility and also those who helped set up the convention, get them together at the start of the convention and say

"These working class people built this. America was not built by corporations and CEOs. It was built by the working class men and women."

(Since Steve Jobs is dead) "Bill Gates didn't build Microsoft by himself. He needed the help of schools who educated him, and thousands of workers who wrote the code for Windows. He needed sales staff to sell it, and without the internet, which was funded by the Government, there would have been no such thing as e-commerce."

"America, you built that."
