Today's events were postponed due to the storm, but the Republican National Convention will resume on Tuesday. As the conventions have changed over the years, the annual event is less about actually deciding who will be the party's candidate. Mitt Romney has already been chosen, so they’ll be taking advantage of the large audience to sell Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, to voters and to Republicans who haven't been fully supportive yet. Most likely everything will be scripted and rehearsed, leaving little chance of there really being much news from the conventions. It will still be a great show, and we’ll have the opportunity to hear the party's positions unfiltered and more from Romney and Ryan.
