9:48 PM I made perhaps the unwise decision to get into a back and forth on Twitter with folks who thought it was a great idea to cause a convention brouahha by booing Leon Panetta. If people think Panetta is a “war-monger”, okay. I get it. I don’t agree with it. But I respect it. But if you’re choosing this venue to boo when we’re in the middle of a battle simply to make sure a dangerous – uniquely dangerous – figure like Donald Trump doesn’t become president, I can’t respect that. And I can’t believe that you really get the stakes of what this election have become. This is a zero sum situation, like every election, but I think more so. Everything matters right now. Every little bit and moment counts. For me this election has never been about Hillary Clinton. But now it’s gone way beyond Democrats and Republicans. What I see at stake right now is what I talked about in this post. If you can’t see that or understand that I don’t think you’re paying attention and I don’t know what to say to you. The damage that this man has done simply through his campaign is far more than I think we understand. What would come after his election is unthinkable.
