DNC platform amendment battle over God and Jerusalem

I am glad that the Democratic Party responded to the critical backlash and decided to amend their platform to acknowledge God and Jerusalem as the capitol of Jerusalem.

This was just embarrassing however! Instead of quickly passing without controversy, the motion to amend the platform led to an ugly delegate battle on the convention floor. Its embarrassing and rather sad to see the anti-Israel sentiment of so many expressed.

Additionally, Gov Strickland who introduced the amendment offered a very sincere comment about the role religion plays in our nation and this nasty response was a rather sad response.

Its unclear whether or not 3/4 vote was actually reached. The vote had to be retaken a third time before it was finally decided that 3/4 majority had been met, but the boos only intensified as the process went on. See for yourself. The video speaks for itself pretty well.
