Gearing Up

I’m taking a week off to gear up for the Republican Convention (which I’m expecting to hit pretty hard). In the meantime, I leave you with my takes on some of the best political clips of the summer. While I’m away, I’d be interested in your thoughts regarding:

1. What you thought was the best clip below

2. Which “Official Games of the 43rd Presidency” logo you liked best

3. What suggestions you have for my Republican Convention coverage. I considered repeating the horseracing “speechstakes” theme I used for the Democrats (4th race, 3rd race, 2nd race, 1st race) , but the Repubs probably deserve something darker.
