The Jennifer Granholm Show

CHARLOTTE -- Reporters were trying to use the pre-Biden section of the convention to pull back and prep. Caroline Kennedy made it easy. Jennifer Granholm put a stop to it.

"Doesn't she have a show on Current?" asked a fellow hack.

"She does," I said. "She's a big performer."

Oh, indeed. The highlight of the Granholm speech, from my POV, was watching a sign language interpreter mime along with all of Granholm's moves -- which, I'm sure, will be gif'd for future generations. Pushing the imaginary shift bar. Pete Townshend windmill-ing with no guitar in hand.
