Happy Tuesday! Well last night was fun..for Democrats. It was a total Demgasm, with Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Without being partisan, they mike dropped on day one.

Honestly, I feel bad for the GOP. Last week was a disaster, as most high profile folks didn't want to be on stage. I'm no Hillary Clinton fan, but this week is very different. Holy cow...the last 24 hours have been wild.

#CAKEDAY: Light those candles for Assemblyman Tom Daly, lobbyists Hezekiah Allen and Eric Stein, Homeland Security's Seth Stodder and OCDP's Erik Taylor!
