Ed noted this morning that this is Joe Biden’s feeling too. How could anyone feel otherwise? Imagine the public health — and political — catastrophe if Democrats plowed headlong into holding the convention in mid-July as scheduled and seeded a new outbreak just as the country is hoping/expecting to enter a summer lull.
Party leaders are considering the alternatives. Postpone the convention until August? Hold a “virtual convention” somehow? Hold an in-person event but scale it way down?
All of those ideas have problems.
