Where are the usual suspects?
Democratic convention: prominent placement for Bill Clinton
Republican convention no-shows:
Geo W Bush, last Republican prez? Nah.
Richard Bruce Cheney, last Republican veep? Nah, don't want him either.
Sarah Palin, last Republican veep candidiate? Nah, REALLY don't want her.
John McCain, last Republican prez candidate, gets to come, but unfeatured. Sort of like Banquo's ghost or something. Or Marley.
The Republicans got NOTHING, except to be anti-Obama. And evidently, completely ashamed of their recent past. It would be funny, if not actually rather pathetic.
Il colore del cielo, la forza del mare.
