           Last night, two presidents graced the stage at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.  The first was former President Bill Clinton.  Clinton’s speech was honest and supportive of Obama.  Bill apparently still has the heart of the party, because the crowd didn’t sit down for a good five minutes before his speech.  His support of Obama may have even been more effective than his wife’s was.  I thought I’d throw in a little Chappelle for some laughs.


           Next was Joe Biden.  Biden hit the stage with a lot of applause, but nothing close to Clintons welcome.  Biden’s speech I feel was solid, but it was the weakest of all of the main speeches of the convention.  He spoke to all of the things that were said before, and had some inspiring stories about his childhood.  He did his job of solidifying Obama’s American story.  Luckily, Biden had a secret weapon to win the crowd over.  Check the video.  Remember when I said that 2 presidents graced the stage, well here’s the second.

On Monday Michelle Obama spoke to the Democrats of America, about her raising, her life, and her relationship with our next president:Barack Obama.  A moving speech that spoke to Barack’s determination, responsibility, and ability to lead.  For the first major speech of the 2008 DNC, and her first national speech she did a good job.  She also has the appeal of a first lady, reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy.

Tuesday Night: Hillary Clinton is the main speech of the day.  The big question is will she attempt to unite the party for Barack, or support her own bid and run a roll call vote?  She definitively answered the question with her speech.  She made it clear of her support in the early parts of her address, and then moved on to herself and her voters.  Just when she began to lean towards “self-hype” she drew the crowd to a chant of “Keep Going” for Obama.  On the 88th anniversary of Women’s voting rights she touched on the future possibilities of women in this country, after her historical performance.  However, her jabs at McCain such as: We will not have “4 more years, of the past 8 years”.  hopefully this was enought to grab a few votes for Barack. 

“We The People, Not We The Favored Few…”
