At a political convention, it helps to make a grand entrance and not to mention, a memorable exit.
Here are the good, the bad, and the awkward. Hillary’s shattered glass ceiling entrance was a hit. It had the audience chanting at her screen image.
But sometimes a miss can be memorable. For instance when Baltimore’s mayor was supposed to gavel the democratic convention…to order!
But she forgot to use the gavel. ¬†She walked off and 15 seconds later came back with a bang…
It happened two more times…
When the convention was being recessed….someone yelled “gavel” to remind the chair to return and swing that thing.

Taking a page out of Hitchcock…Donald trump’s somewhat less portly silhouette made an entrance so dramatic it was parodied by actress Elizabeth Banks at the democratic convention. the women on

The women on The View spoofed it. So did Jimmy Fallon with Michael Jackson moves and Colbert made shadow puppets, got in a fight, and met a girl…

From dancing entrance to dancing exit. Acting DNC chair Donna Brazile sashayed off stage. Howard Dean’s exit was a scream….and Michigan and Florida and Pennsylvania and then we’re going to The White House!
