Circa Clinton

"Circa Clinton" Continued...

The decision drew boos (and derision from Republicans), but a bigger omission in the platform drew less attention: The party document dropped language that called for isolating terrorist group Hamas in the Middle East - a decision that could have deeper implications for U.S. policy in the region.

The mini-controversy faded as the evening wore on, but left a significant question ahead of Obama's speech Thursday night: Will the president address the serious foreign policy questions that have taken second-tier status this week?

By late last night, those questions didn't seem to be on the minds of Democratic revelers in the streets of downtown Charlotte. Instead, the focus remained on Clinton, with one man wondering out loud about a different question: "Could we have him as president instead?"
