The Latino, Democratic Mayor of the second largest city in the United States won’t be addressing his fellow party members in any signifigant way at next week’s Democratic Convention.
Here’s some wild theories as to why:
a. California is expected to be an easy win for Obama in November, so better to fill the speaking slate with DNC faves from red and undecided states.
b. Mayor Villaraigosa was a national co-chair for Hilary Clinton’s presidential bid, and who wants to remember that?
c. The Democratic party is trying to keep a lid on the number of philanderers as its spokesmen. John Edwards will reportedly be nowhere near Denver. Bill Clinton will be… um… toplining the roster. Let me amend this to, the Democratic party is trying to keep a limit on the number of philanderers as its spokesmen.
