So punny. @Slate interview with @ggreenwald on #DNCleaks, Trump/Putin, McCarthyism, and WikiLeaks is really, really good:
Retweeted by Chuck ToddFirst Read: An OK Speech, But a Powerful Convention
Retweeted by Chuck Todd @pedrogomezESPN @Cubs you nailed it.Chapman trade basically adds 3 relievers to @cubs. Rondon now 1 of best in 8th, Strop and Wood strong in 7th. Move of the summer. @chucktodd
Retweeted by Chuck ToddWell that was an adventure. Both the conventions and the Nats attempting to hold a 9th inning lead.So how did Chapman look tonight for the Cubs? Nats bullpen has been a mess for four years. Not just this month.It's now over, Papelbon has lost the job. Dusty just pulled him. Can't put this toothpaste back in tube. This move cements it. He's doneOn the NJ Turnpike on way to NYC, listening to see if Papelbon can somehow save a three run 9th inning lead. #notconfidentThe highly effective dog whistle this convention has been sending to disaffected Republicans ended abruptly in HRC's speech... #TooLiberal

@Devapathways you may be right. Trump's speech played better with the public than pundits. Same may be true for herA year ago, did you think Clinton would ever be outlining such a liberal agenda? #DemConvention
Retweeted by Chuck ToddTrump should congratulate Hillary on first woman nomination and welcome her to the fight. But he won't. #TreatAsWorthyAdversary
Retweeted by Chuck ToddClinton just skipped the line in her prepared remarks, "I ran for President and lost."
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThere are approx 100+ Sanders delegates wearing neon yellow tshirts, they plan some form of protest during this speech.Someday a nominee's kid will say: "He was never around, never came to a recital, never saw me in a play. Know why? He was working for YOU!"
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThe precision w/which Dems are running this convo is impressive. They just had Katy Perry start "Roar" so that the chorus popped right at 10I didn't know that Putin was a drummer for Genesis. Found this concert photo poster in our Wells… speakers at the Democratic convention tonight are dull, dull, dull. Theory here: they are setting the table for Hillary Clinton.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddLove this. Fwiw, as far as city planning is concerned, I like efficiency of all sports facilities sharing one lot's why the 2016 election reminds @chucktodd of guacamole: 🥑
Retweeted by Chuck Todd @MKosinskiCNN the town really comes alive.This is outrageous
Retweeted by Chuck ToddKaine: you think I should do my trump impression in the speech? Hillary: no Obama: no Bill: no Biden: yeah man, yeah, that's great stuff
Retweeted by Chuck ToddAnd thank you Mr President for noting Donald Trump is neither Republican nor conservative.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddAnd the most surprising part of the POTUS Trump take down is that he separated him from "Republican" and "conservative"; said he is neitherTruly astounding vocabulary used tonight about Trump. Bloomberg called him a "con man" and POTUS used the phrase "homegrown demagogue"
The Democrats threw everything they had at Trump tonight in front of the largest audience they'll get until the debates. Will polls move?Been a big night for Clinton. Party's most credible leaders as character witnesses. If her numbers don't move now, when will they? @AlecMacGillis they want to appeal to Republicans @KimStrassel @meetthepress who am I to say no if you show up with itWill you let me??? i have a really big one. We will rock the ratings, promise you.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddNext time on @meetthepress bring the chain saw'd take the old reality, where the VP could be negative because a lot of people actually liked the nominees.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddIt was pandering but perhaps a necessary pander by Kaine when he said everyone should "feel the Bern". Biggest applause line yet.I just want to point out Bill Clinton is wearing a Hebrew "Hillary" (הילרי) pin tonight at the Democratic convention
Retweeted by Chuck ToddOh. HELLO young Tim Kaine... #DemsInPhilly
Retweeted by Chuck ToddWatching Democrats talk about America the way Republican candidates used to talk about America. #DemsInPhilly
Retweeted by Chuck ToddA lot of folks in the arena didn't quite know how to respond to Kaine's "Semper Fi" salute to his son."Fight song" might be catchy but the lyrics really say littleThis is Biden leaving a mark on this convention. Impressive exit for someone who thought he had one more campaign in him.Biden with an impressive control over the crowd. Got the entire arena to quiet down in an instant.So Joe Biden would've been extremely good at running against Donald Trump.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddJoe Biden is the only pol I can think of who can use the word "malarkey" and not get made fun of for doing itThere is genuine excitement in this hall for Joe Biden, easily the best reception at a convo I think he's ever gotten.It's Marvin, the brother that 43 is closest with, fwiw' nightmare unfolding: hall unraveling during a speech that they're counting on to help disqualify Trump.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddIn 60s and 70s, former CIA directors didn't get prime speaking slots at a Dem convention in the first place.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddProtesters have certainly overshadowed Panetta's national security critique of Trump.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddPanetta is CLEARLY not popular with quite a few Bernie delegates.At the conventions at least, both parties are doing their level best to put off independents and curious opponents.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThe "no more war" chants began just before Panetta was about to criticize Trump on Russia, taking a little sting out the moment.It appears some delegates started a "no more war" chant in the middle of Panetta's speech. Others tried to drown out with cheers and jeers @USSenBlutarsky this is a Twitter feed that I'm counting on to bring needed levity to this campaign. #fatdrunkandstupidI'm voting for whichever party gives a prime time speaking slot to Charro
Retweeted by Chuck Todd @BenHowe @BraddJaffy I was referring to electeds. Ben and many conserv writers and reporters have indeed come down hardA truly emotional moment in this arena. Gabby Giffords had the entire place paying attn. She has really made great strides in her recovery.On @meetthepress last year, Jerry Brown admitted that if he were 10 years younger, he would have run for POTUS this cycle.Will President Obama call out @realDonaldTrump by name in his speech tonight? Yes, and more than once according to source
Retweeted by Chuck Todd
The Nats front office may be learning a hard lesson. There's a price for NOT paying for the best closer avail. It's called golfing in OctDespite very successful day 2 for the Clinton camp at the convo, TPP remarks by McAuliffe might be the story of the day that has most legsBill's already doing a better job reciting and selling the Hillary bio than any TV spot they've run. @chrislhayes and Arkansas @chrislhayes AlaskaLook at these freaking hippies
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThis is the TENTH #DNC speech @billclinton has given #Decision2016
Retweeted by Chuck ToddClinton trying to mention all 50 states in this speech. #DemConvention #DNCinPHL
Retweeted by Chuck ToddBill Clinton and Donald Trump were born 66 days apart in 1946. Very different stages today…
Retweeted by Chuck ToddAs a Nats and Dodgers fan, I concur. NEXT year please for the Cubs. Not THIS one! Clinton's great speaking strength has always been "the storyteller" construction.Since Pres Clinton didn't enter to Fleetwood Mac, one assumes he exits the stage to it, right?Comparing each Tuesday from both convos, this night is more pro-Clinton than anti-Trump. Last week, it was more anti-Clinton than pro-TrumpClinton campaign trying to distance itself from McAuliffe-TPP remarks. of Movement were incredibly moving, but it would have been powerful to have included widows of fallen police officers. #DNCinPHL
Retweeted by Chuck ToddConsidering how fragile the Clinton-Sanders delegate relationship is, hard to imagine Clinton camp let's the McAuliffe TPP flip sit as factUm, longtime Clinton friend just reinforces Trump's earlier attack today on Clinton and TPP. Gio struggle to start the Nats game, I wonder if Nats get more serious about a run at Sale.Publicly owned team actually meets the definition of "America's team" @jpodhoretz different vibe for sure. It wasn't until late wed and Thursday that Cleveland became Trump's convo.For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddI've been disappointed at the lack of #itsalwayssunny references this week. Important comedic public service! like she was keeping track of the tally and sent when she was over the top. Didn't wait for VT dresses up as a "super delegate." Frank is an angry, drunken Bernie backer and fights with Dee who is for HRC. #AlwaysSunnyDNC
Retweeted by Chuck ToddIndeed, it was South Dakota that did the honors

Retweeted by Chuck ToddWhat's the most interesting specific question you don't have an answer to? (note: meaning of life, "what are capybaras" not specific enough)
Retweeted by Chuck ToddNext test for Clinton-Sanders unity: how often she will ask Sanders to campaign for her and how often he will say yes
Dem shift left since '90s: '96: Clinton ads touting deportations,border security '16: Daughter of illegal imm speaks at Clinton convention
Retweeted by Chuck ToddWait, @TheFix, where is Randy Quaid? Tell me it's true that he is here. #realtomatocatsupEddieSanders and Warren did what Clinton needed them to do, but the only speech Team Clinton will actually want rerun is Michelle Obama's.Trump,who's been making play for Sanders voters for months, takes new twist: that Sanders "abandoned" revolution
Retweeted by Chuck ToddLongest sustained applause for any speaker at either convention so far? Bernie SandersMy view of the Sanders speech. A sea of blue Bernie signs. popular as Warren is with progressives, FLOTUS was a tough act to follow. She felt like a keynoter @vivelafra I'm the network complaint department, pure and simple. Happens hourly. @PaulsonPhillip @bakedalaska how dare we try to get the facts out accurately.The best speeches are spoken. Not shouted. A lesson many politicians never learn
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThe @NBCNews special coverage of the Dem convo begins in 9 mins with an exclusive. Jane Sanders on set. Big opening night.If the Dems were serious about unity then Art would already be singingThis song more than any other S&G song needs Art.
