It Must Be Some Sort of Suicide Pact

So Debbie Wasserman Schultz says she won't be opening the Democrat convention in Philadelphia.  She's so unpopular at the moment that the party cannot afford for her to take her rightful place on the podium as chair of the convention.  That's pretty bad.  So who did the DNC choose to replace her in opening the convention?  They could have picked the governor of Pennsylvania or the mayor of Philadelphia which are hosting the event.  They could have picked Donna Brazile who is the temporary replacement for Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  But no, the Clinton campaign (which is undoubtedly calling the shots) picked Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.  You remember Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, don't you?  She's the mayor of the city of Baltimore.  She's the one who told the Baltimore police to pull back while rioters looted and burned part of the city after Freddie Gray died in police custody.  If Donald Trump is the "law and order" candidate, Rawlings-Blake is the "no law and disorder" representative.  The police around the country were already incensed that the anti-police groups were going to have major speaking spots at the convention.  This will just make things worse.

Is this some sort of suicide pact?  Is the Clinton campaign throwing the election on purpose?  I wonder how much that cost.
