The young lady that gave the closing prayer was outstanding. Did they show it anywhere but C-span?

Probably not. Too much left wing bias.

It wasn't on PBS because they were too busy discussing how amazing Michelle Obama was. And, they are godless heathens,

What's wrong with MSNBC?

Ugh, Fox all i'd do is end up yelling at the TV.

why don't you like Ed Schultz, Lawrence O'Donell, or Rev Sharpton ?

can't comment on Chris Mathews b/c i've almost never seen him.

i can usually only watch Broadcast TV so i only get to see these folks (MSNBC) on rare occasions at my sib's house.
And my rabbit ears can hardly ever bring my local PBS station.

my computer is either too old or needs updating that i can't do for certain tech reasons as i currently understand it.
Howver it usually is good enough for streaming Sound so i suddenly thought of and goggled up C-SPAN (part poluicy wonk ) Radio most of the time this evening, then night.

but that IS so uniformed!

Just ask (listen up, Indy) any of the Americans with 1> pre-existingconditions,2> those who couldn't afford preventitive/screening tests
(ESP women < i don't know about you specifically, but i DO know what alot of tea party and really Right Wing Conservatives & Theocrats believe -do you Indy want your wife/parnter/girlfriend -i don't know your status so i won't presume on that- to be obidient to your every whim, want and opinion>)

i will laugh at myself IF Indy rurns out to be a woman!

3>got kicked out of their insurance b/c they got really sick, 4> reached their "lifetime" limit on insurance paying all or parts of their bills b/c cause they have been chronically or sometimes acutely ill.

Just about if not ALL these people are now doing better because of "Obama Care" they're lives have been saved, their illnesses gotten better, they've caught some goddamn cancer in time ow b/c of screening!

and there's 2 orher provisions one partial & one total that

I hope and they are highlighting already some if this healthcRre differences....


I want them to do some ads regarding people's lives that have bern so altered for the better because of ObamaCare . that might remove some of thatb cynasism!

i'll be clear: i do sometimes have a cynical streak BUT i've also seen some important chages through the decades so that I get out ofthat way of thinking/feelng.

And Indy you just happen to bethe Conservative that popped up at this point in this thread........ and got my fervent "voice".

Emotional stuff. It's too bad that he's gone.

Amen! It really is a great shame- flawed as he was at times he was the Liberal Lion of the Senate!

and my Chnl 13 (PBS) I can't get most of the time (no Cable TV) so i just saw little clear snaps, but mostly highly pixelated or No Signal blank image of that video.

The first Democratic Convention I ever watched on TV and we were on Family Vaction WAS The 1968 Convention .

I was furious w my folks b/c because we webt out to dinner while they had the Tribute to RFK. Eventually i saw snips of it down through the decades,

I was ready to work for Bobby if ...well you, know...,..
and i'm wistful to this day that when he marched in NYC's Greek Parade (68)... i was not the biggest oarade fan at that point in my life... I said Oh i'll catch him later when he swings by NYC again for another Parade or campaigning before the Convention .....

and I'm one of the first round of 18yr olds to vote in 71!

But who knows? I want to live with hope.
indeed you should!

i live in nyc and i do keep an eye LGBT issues, and i hadn't heard that rumour nor the first either (also kep an eye African-American issues, too).
Great speech! Only heard in real time through on-line radio. C-SPAN! When i get acess to higher grade computer shopefully this Sat i'll watch the speeches i loved . i did see First Lady Michele on broadcast.

Why that's a problem I have no idea. I love that, honest fair criticism instead of forced blind loyalty.

I love that he has the you know what to do that.
it's interesting... i had both postives, negatives and worries about both Hillary & Barack in 08. it really WAS a shame that a woman and a Adrican American ended up running against each other.

i never bought the whole idea some liberals/progressives d that Pres Obama was totally a L/P . In case you haven't guessed I am a proud Liberal/Progressive!


So even though i'vve been dissapointed in himfor various things , I've also been pround and happy with other things he has accomplished.

Finally got a chance to see Michelle's speech - obviously I'm biased because I like her personally but I really do think that she was absolutely outstanding and gave a better speech than anyone in Tampa. And for the record, I did think that Ann Romney did a very good job as well.

I love Michelle Obama. To me she just epitomizes the best of a woman. She's smart, down to earth, a devoted wife and mother, funny,caring, genuine. I like her more than I like the President.

She's so warm that I feel like I could hug her and talk to her, even though we live in completely different worlds.

And I wish I wasn't too lazy to work out like her and get those arms and shoulders. When they showed her from the back, OMG. Dress was very pretty. I just wanted to fix that one section of hair, but it just made her more real.

As a rule I hate cable news. I'm not am not a fan of most talking heads, either too shouty or smug. However, Maddow is measured and witty. Love her so very much. Fox News would be dangerous for my TV.
