We nominated a president last time. We have an incumbent President of the United States. We’re very proud of him. There certainly will be enough people there to express that pride, but I’m not encouraging members to go to the convention no matter what the situation was, because they can be home. It’s campaign time. It’s the first week in September...Express that pride.... or not.
She's hoping negative inferences won't be draw from failure to attend the convention. It is a big waste of time and money. Especially if people don't watch it on TV.
Myself, I watch. I watch to blog. Will you watch (either convention)?
