We Democrats are a very inclusive party -- we thrive on tough issues and on
the chance to work them out.
The National Convention in Los Angeles opened with a prayer by a Roman
Catholic priest who is anti-abortion, and said so in his prayer. Getting
people on the dais with whom Democrats all agree would be impossible.
Thanks for watching the convention. Thanks for noticing the Scouts there.
Thanks for noticing that many viewpoints are represented.
I think it's always appropriate to ask Scouts to present the colors at these
gatherings. I get nervous when Scouts are invited to participate in the
group photos of the candidates, which is against Scout policies.
Thanks for supporting Scouting. Thanks for trying to make it better.
