Obama Will Include Republicans at Convention

President Obama's advisers "are scripting a Democratic National Convention featuring several Republicans in a prime-time appeal to independents," Politico reports.

They also plan "a blistering portrayal" of Mitt Romney as a heartless aristocrat who "would devastate the American middle class."

"The plans are spelled out in an early draft of the convention plan, providing an unusual glimpse of presidential advisers' thought bubble about what viewers will see from the podium -- closed captioning of what strategist David Axelrod and other top advisers are thinking about each element of the television spectacle. The detailed plans also offer a preliminary road map of the Obama campaign's big themes for the fall."
