“America, we cannot turn back. Not with so much work to be done. Not with so many children to educate, and so many veterans to care for. Not with an economy to fix and cities to rebuild and farms to save. Not with so many families to protect and so many lives to mend. America, we cannot turn back. We cannot walk alone. At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to march into the future. Let us keep that promise – that American promise – and in the words of Scripture hold firmly, without wavering, to the hope that we confess.  Thank you, God Bless you, and and God Bless the United States of America.”

                                                                   —Barack Obama

 

        Not to be corny, not to be cliche, and not to be cool:  Senator Barack Obama’s speech was more than a mere oratory.  It was a symbol of hope, a symphony of change, it was a call to action.  It was a helping hand to those in need, and a threat to McCain and Republicans.  When Senator Obama took the stage, the crowd erupted.  However, Obama quieted them down and got down to business.

           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.
