Read: Democrats embrace the freedom to marry

by Jeremy Hooper

One of the big stories out of the Republican's convention was the speed and throatedness (both full) with which many in the party distanced themselves from the platform. I'll be curious to see if that happens with the Democrats here in Charlotte.

The platform in question:

No, no one is bound to the platform language. But if the platforms are meaningless, what does any of it mean? Why a convention? Why a guiding document? Why a party?

Personally, I'm pretty happy with this language. It's nice to feel invited onto the platform rather than being told my marriage should walk the plank.
