I get the frustration with Republicans speaking at our convention. I really do. I'm a "burn the Republican Party to the ground and salt the earth" kind of Democrat.

It shouldn't (and likely won't) be like this four years from now, but right now it is. Here's why I'm ok with it:
Each of the Republicans speaking are committing to voting for a candidate running on the most progressive platform in our nation's history.

That platform looks the way it does because of the organizers, agitators, and others who willed it and pressured it into existence.
When Biden wins this election convincingly with the help of some disaffected GOP voters, the mandate will be for the platform he ran on, and we'll hold him and his administration accountable.

The more Republicans who reject Trump publicly, the better chance we have of winning.
Is this the convention I would've planned if I were in charge? No.

But it's a convention that's highlighting both the beautiful diversity of the Democratic Party and of the coalition uniting to defeat Trump's Republican existential threat.

I can get on board with that.
