After a long journey from Tampa to Charlotte, co-hosts Dan Patterson and Marc Lizoain are once again safely ensconced among the comforts of the DNC Google lounge. The dynamic duo are joined in this episode by Ester Cross of Talk Radio News, and the conversation begins with an assessment of the Occupy protest that took place on Sunday and a discussion of the state of the DNC itself. The show concludes with the question of what Obama and the Democrats must do to take full advantage of what Dan and Marc think was a huge missed opportunity by the Republicans.
