Here’s the full video of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the convention chair, struggling with yesterday’s vote over whether to amend the Democratic platform to return passages about God and the primacy of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel that were included in the 2008 version, but omitted this time around.

The vote took place right after the mayor gaveled in at around 5 p.m.

By that time, it was clear that following an outcry from both conservative bloggers and Democratic delegates (including those in New York) that a serious mistake had been made in removing these parts of the platform. The Obama campaign made it known the words would be returned, and that the president himself had intervened to make that happen.

The campaign at first said Obama had seen the platform language prior to the convention, but then later switched tactics and said he did not learn of the problem until Wednesday morning when news reports at the controversy began to mount.

Shortly after the gavel, Villaraigosa recognized former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, chair of platform drafting committee, who said:

“As an ordained United Methodist minister I am here to attest and affirm that our faith and belief in God is central to the American story and informs the values we’ve expressed in our party’s platform. In addition President Obama recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and our party’s platform should as well.”

The mayor the held the voice vote, and was clearly confused about what to do when it appeared to be dead even.

“Let me do that again…I’ll do that one more time,” Villaraigosa said, ultimately holding three different votes.

Finally, after receiving some hurried advice from a convention staffer, Villaraigosa declared: “In the opinion of the chair two thirds haved voted in the affirmative and the platform is amended as shown on the screen.”

You can watch for yourself and see if you agree with his assessment. Clearly, a number of people in the room did that, and expressed their displeasure by booing.
