Prepping for the Democratic Platform Committee Meeting in Orlando

Political conventions fascinate me. How each party brands itself, tells its history, predicts the future, and how each party portrays the other side.

Before watching this year’s conventions, I plan on attending the Democratic Platform Committee Meeting in Orlando, FL on July 8— 9, 2016. It’s open to the general public on a first-come, first serve-basis. I’ve started reviewing and digesting the draft platform in preparation for this week’s trip. Since the Republican Platform is not yet publicly available, I’ve been contrasting the 2016 Democratic Platform Draft with documents from past conventions for both parties.

Do you plan on reading this year’s platforms from either party? What are you hoping to see in the final platforms?
