Mark Warner Plans Bipartisan Speech

I guess that has ticked off some democrats. Mark Warner, former governor of Virginia, is actually the keynote speaker tonight. But of course, he's being upstaged by none other than Hillary. 
CNN: A source close to Mark Warner who helped the Senate candidate craft his convention keynote speech said criticism by senior Democrats that his planned remarks were not partisan enough were off-base – because the Virginia Senate candidate's bi-partisan reputation is precisely why he was asked to speak in the first place.

“That is at odds with the notion that he should be the person ripping the bark off McCain,” this source said.
I would argue that I'd like to see McCain's bark stay on. What I'd like is more grown-up conversation. Leave the bark ripping to McCain and his kind. Go Warner.
