The Democrats are wrapping up their national convention this week in Philadelphia, nominating Hillary Clinton as their presidential candidate. Last week it was the Republicans in Cleveland nominating Donald Trump. These candidates are carefully chosen by electoral delegates whose qualifications appear to be their ability to wear silly hats, hold a cocktail in one hand, a sign in the other, and yell without spilling their drink.
Every four years, the whole world gets to witness this time-honored political pageantry. It looks like a WWE SmackDown challenge, but with fewer folding chairs being thrown.
Next up will be the televised debates between the two presidential candidates. If you want to participate in this part of the election process, just put on a funny hat, pour yourself a stiff drink, and yell at the TV!
