Q: Did the President have any role in the decision to move his speech from the stadium to the arena? And was he disappointed by the outcome there?
Q: How does that square, though, with what you said yesterday when we asked about the concerns about weather and you said, we plan to go ahead -- I think you had even mentioned that sporting events happen there, and now youre saying this isnt a sporting event.
Q: Can I ask you, Jen, about the -- or even Jay -- about the change in the platform regarding Jerusalem from 2008. This platform I think for the DNC does not mention them as the capital of Israel. Can you both comment on that and whether you agree with it -- the White House agree with it?
Q: What's the campaigns position on Rahm Emanuel raising money for Priorities USA? And does that signal some sort of panic mode about being out-raised by the Republicans?
Q: Back to moving the Thursday venue, was there ever a concern about being able to fill the stadium? Did that factor in at all?
