Hipsters For Obama: 5 Demands From DNC Youth Contingent
As the Democratic National Convention officially opens in Charlotte today with L.A.'s own mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, at the helm, and other Californians already making a lasting impression, it's fitting to note the difference between the parties.
While the Republicans have had to contend with the tea party, Christian conservatives and a right wing that's hostile to illegal immigration, Democrats have a C-grade mayor, drunk delegates and, now, a full-on hipster contingent.
