PHILADELPHIA — As protesters storm Philadelphia, the early verdict regarding logistics here at the Democratic National Convention is in. Reporters who attended the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and who are now covering the DNC seem to agree that the RNC’s logistics were far better organized.
Maggie Haberman, presidential campaign correspondent for the New York Times, tweeted:
Early verdict, Cleveland was much better logistically

Chris Cillizza, editor of “The Fix” blog at the Washington Post, agreed:
Comparing Philly and Cleveland right now in terms of convention logistics is like comparing Cavs and 76ers. No comparison.

Fox News contributor and Townhall.com editor Guy Benson seconded Haberman’s assessment:

Anubha Bhonsle, executive editor for CNN News 18, found both the logistics and coffee to be better in Cleveland.
