Imagining What The Democratic Convention Speakers Might Say

Another week, another endless stream of speakers trying to put a nice little frame around the election cycle

Note: These are bad predictions and mostly reflect the fact that we would rather watch Al Franken draw a picture of the United States than see people drone on about the election for hours.
