Democratic National Convention, Again
Thursday, 2008 August 28 - 10:00 pm
Whew. Great speech by Barack Obama. He did what I'd hoped he'd do: he undercut what he expected the Republicans to throw at him next week. Very, very strong.

Democratic National Convention
Tuesday, 2008 August 26 - 9:43 pm
Should I be live blogging the Democratic National Convention? Naah... I just don't have the energy to comment about every B-list politician and "ordinary person" who doesn't have any public speaking skills.

And anyway, many of the same comments apply this year as in years past:
  • speakers think they have to shout into the microphone to be heard
  • political delegates have absolutely no rhythm (and no shame)
  • everyone jumps at the chance to chant something
That being said, so far there have been a couple of highlights. Michelle Obama gave a great speech; the Obama kids were adorable; and Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer just gave a pretty entertaining speech.

Hillary is coming on right now. Should be interesting.

Obama Selects Biden as running mate

However, I did think that Obama would lean towards someone more conservative. Texas congressman Chet Edwards was mentioned frequently in the last few days. Maybe Obama just didn't want the name "Edwards" anywhere near his campaign.
