Union, millennial, diversity, Ed Rendell: Make your own Democratic National Convention announcement!

Mad Libs picture (1)

Last month, the Democratic National Committee announced the opening of its Philadelphia office, and in the process managed to hit as many of the Democratic political cliches as possible.

It hosted the announcement at a union print shop, owned by a local businessman. Mayor Michael Nutter and a female reverend, Leah Daughtry, CEO of the 2016 Convention, were on camera. Naturally, members of the Carpenters Union were still on hand to protest because some DNC events are expected to take place at the Convention Center.

So, how does the DNC make the all the right concessions? How does it pander to as many Democratic focus groups as possible?

Well, now the decision can be in your hands! Use the words below to make your own Democratic National Convention announcement adventure.
