    It would be ever so much more fun if they’d let him do the Repuglican convention…. what a delicious thought.

    @Nadine The Daily Show, including John and the correspondants, is at the Republican Convention RIGHT NOW.

    I thought this was being held at a Bank of America stadium – did they rename it?

  • Jay

    With no chance of rain Thurs night the DNC changed the venue because they couldn’t fill the Panthers Bank Of America Stadium. So they are sticking to the 12,000 seat venue. With the poor ratings of the DNC convention plus the problem of empty seats it does not look good for Obama. Even more so know that fact check AP delivered a huge blow to the things said last night. Easy election for Mitt and Ryan!

    NEW YORK (AP) — Michelle Obama has bragging rights over Ann Romney in one early measurement — television ratings.

    The Nielsen Co. said about 26.2 million people watched the opening night of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C., where the first lady was the featured speaker.

    Last week, Nielsen said 22.3 million watched the first night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., where potential first lady Ann Romney talked about her husband, Mitt. The same number of viewers watched the Democrats’ first night in 2008, when Michelle Obama was also the featured speaker.

    *Jay, I doubt this is an easy win for Mitt and Ryan!
