Dems Put Jerusalem Line Back in Platform

Chaos ensued on the convention floor Wednesday afternoon, as Democratic National Convention Chairman Antonio Villaraigosa attempted to conduct a vote on whether or not the platform should be amended to define Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and a line about God. They had been heavily criticized by the right for not doing so initially. During the voice vote, every positive vote was met with delegates yelling "no," leaving many in the crowd unclear about whether the majority actually wanted the changes. Doesn't matter though, because the DNC chairman ruled to go ahead with the amendments. UPDATE: It is now being reported that President Obama, himself, ordered the changes.
