To be a Jewish Democrat: IJN exclusive roundtable

To be a Jewish Democrat: IJN exclusive roundtable

A fair warning to all Republicans, conservatives, libertarians and other detractors of the Democratic Party: This is an article exclusively of and about Democrats.

The reason for such gross imbalance, however unusual it may seem, should be obvious. As virtually everyone in Colorado already knows, next week the Democratic National Convention will be storming to town, intent on formally nominating its “presumptive” presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, not to mention kicking off the critical autumn phase of the campaign.

And whether Denver and Colorado ultimately turn out to be dominated by blue, red or purple voters, for four days in late August, Denver is going to be an exclusively, and perhaps spectacularly, Democratic place.
