No Balloons at the DNC

Attendees at the Democratic National Convention are in for a huge disappointment: There will be no traditional balloon drop after President Obama’s acceptance speech. Obama’s Thursday night speech was recently moved indoors after thunderstorms threatened the area (is Mother Nature trying to make a point here?) and a party official told CNN that there will be no balloons falling from the ceiling at the end of his speech, but “there will be a festive conclusion.” This better be good.
