California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris speaks with KPCC radio host Patt Morrison (off camera) in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 6, 2012 during the Democratic National Convention. Lauren Osen

The Democratic Party has made it clear that the goal the convention is to define the election as “a choice between…an economy built to last for middle class Americans or a return to the failed policies of…tax breaks for the wealthy.” Convention speakers have been chosen to make this as obvious as possible, including California’s Attorney General Kamala D. Harris, known for her pivotal role in the National Mortgage Settlement.


Does talking about the economy put the Democrats in a bad light considering where the country is at economically? Or does it force people to examine the economic plans for both parties?
