Platform reversal ... not over by a long shot

Too little, too late, too ... badly botched?

Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Wednesday denied any "discord" over the Democratic Party's decision to return "God" and "Jerusalem" to the party platform, and said the move "absolutely" received the two-thirds delegate vote required.

"Well, really, it was essentially a technical oversight," Wasserman Schultz, referring to the reversal, said on CNN. "And President Obama, because he personally believes that Jerusalem is and always should remain the capital of Israel, he made sure that we amended the platform to reflect his personal view as well as reflect the language that we had in the platform in 2008."

But after the delegates voted by voice, there was some dispute over whether the amendment passed by two-thirds. Some delegates booed the measure, but Wasserman Schultz denied that there was a rift in the convention hall.
Baloney.  On all counts. 

"Some" delegates booed?  If you haven't already seen it, watch the video.  And the reaction to the video.  Expect to see a lot more of it in the next 61 days.
