12. The entire story right now is DWS and the emails

Jul 2016

It should be on what a great VP pick Tim Kaine was.

It should be guessing what Warren is going to say tonight.

It should be guessing what Michelle is going to say tonight and lighthearted ribbing about whether she will bring up Melania.

But instead they're all talking about DWS. And she's going to try to make an appearance?

I get it that she put in a lot of work. It's unfortunate that it's such an ignominious end to her tenure as DNC Chair. But for the sake of optics, which is ALL this is about (who are we kidding) she has to stay out of sight.
