The idea that if there is no floor fight over the rules and platform, the Democratic Party convention will be hollow and no more than a vanity project showcasing the likely nominee Joe Biden is about as egregious an example of small circle thinking as I can think of. It misses the overarching importance of Democrats — President Obama, Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Julian Castro, and Joe Biden and his Vice Presidential running mate to name a few — laying out their case against Trump and the Republican Party, while making a case for Biden and other Democrats down the ticket to a television audience of tens of millions.
