DNC Unable to Reinstate God and Jerusalem without Running Roughshod over Delegates Opposed

As seen today on C-SPAN:

The Democratic National Convention amended arm-twisted the Party Platform as moved by former Governor Ted Strickland:

“As an ordained United Methodist minister, I am here to attest and affirm that our faith and belief in God is central to the American story and informs the values we’ve expressed in our party’s platform.

In addition, President Obama recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and our party’s platform should as well.”

Antonio Villaraigosa, Mayor of Los Angeles, Democratic Convention Chairman, then put it to a voice vote… three times. Adoption required two-thirds majority. The first vote was unsuccessful. The “No”s grew louder each time. It is worth watching.
