Idaho Dems Ready For Fiery Confab

The Idaho Democratic Convention will open in Moscow on Friday, complete with platform hearings, a pub crawl and a keynote speech from former Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell. Party Chairman Larry Kenck joked in a statement to the press earlier this week that after last weekend's GOP convention he was pleased to hear Moscow was still standing, but he also warned the community to not yet rest. “After reading about last weekend's events, we worried that we might arrive this week to smoldering ruins that you might see after raging battles,” he wrote.

Question: How do you expect the Idaho Democratic Party convention to be different from the Idaho Republican Party one?
