    He did a fantastic job. It was so good to hear him address the DNC.
    How in the world could we end up with 4 more years of republicanism.

    But it was more than that... FINALLY someone stood up there and talked about the negligence of Katrina, the crony behavior of this present administration and the disaster of the "deficit and spend" approach of the republicans... It was way beyond time.

    Kerry was great as well. Glad to hear him say what he did!!

    Kerry was good, Bill rocked as always, but Biden moved me. All in all the speeches at this convention have been awesome. I hope Obama can keep up the pace.

    The Republican convention can really only match it if McCain bitch slaps Bush on stage. Dunno fun to watch thou......

    I have a lot of respect for - and give a lot of credit to the people who write the speeches politicians and others give. Who can't practice a speech for a few days and then read it off of the teleprompter? It is fairly easy - I've done it for years at venture capital gatherings - and so could many of you. You practice your delivery and timing, and you may make suggestions - requesting that something you like be included or something you maybe don't like be deleted from the content. The real work is done by the writers - who work for a long time perfecting, editing and tailoring a speech to help make the speaker look and sound great.

    Bill, like Hillary, did what he needed to do and then some. I'm immensely relieved. But I hear Bill is still mad and is going to blow off Obama's acceptance speech tomorrow. I guess he's not interested in totally repairing his image right now. Still, I'm happy with both of them. Kerry was good. I thought Biden's speech was a bit uneven, but overall was good. He's started to him McCain, which is what he needed to do.

    Nothing selective about it. We live in the country that Bush has built for the last 7 years, thats enough.

    Actually, I saw a story that said that Bill normally leaves the convention early, and that this is in line with what he's done in the past (of course, other than when he gave his acceptance speech.)

    Bill was awesome... it's easy to forget what an incredible speaker he is if you haven't seen him in a while. Hillary was outstanding too!

    Bill is great, but sadly not even his kind words will make obama win. I fear the old repukelican fart will win.icon_evil.gif
