Groucho Marx famously said he wouldn’t join any club that would have him as a member. Bernie Sanders last week turned that on its head, saying he wouldn’t remain a member of any party that wouldn’t have him as its leader. Sanders decided to become a Democrat only last year and only so he could seek the Democratic presidential nomination. He went on to wage an energetic and occasionally entertaining campaign.

Day one of the Democratic National Convention was marked by energy and excitement.

I started my day at the Colorado Delegation Breakfast, where our state’s Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton supporters came together for a productive conversation about continuing to move Colorado forward. Among other platform advancements, my fellow delegates discussed improving college affordability and super delegate reform measures.

DENVER — Happy Monday, and here's to a great start to your Democratic National Convention week if you are one of those lucky 78 delegates or an alternate ... or a consultant or just a visitor getting to celebrate in The City of Brotherly Love! Say hello to "Frank Reynolds" and the gang while you're there. While one might think 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," weather forecasters show you will have overcast skies and some scattered showers today. It may not be sunny all week, but it will be hotter than heck, so I hope you packed your personal misting devices. If you are back home and disinterested in the DNC as it plays out on your telescreens, then Happy International Wine and Cheese Day, or ... Health and Happiness with Hypnosis Day. I hope one of the two — the warning label advises not to mix both — help take the edge off your Monday. And don't forget, if you run for office ... people very well may pay you to quit.
