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.
Agreed. She is so incredibly cool. I know she's not interested, but if she ever changed her mind and did decide to take a run at the presidency one day, I'd vote for her, no question.

I've still yet to catch her speech. Will look online tonight for it after I get home from work.

I know you're being facetious but it is really, really not likely. Despite what the media and/or the Republicans are trying to stir up, it wouldn't make any sense.

He knows that it is best for everyone if Obama is re-elected and is a success in his second term. Rather than HRC having to fight against an incumbent which is always very difficult. Much less have to defend a Democratic economic policy via Obama from Jan '09-Jan '13 that is perceived as a failure, when she worked in this administration. Despite what some have said to the contrary, he certainly would WANT Obama to win to benefit his wife. Even if he doesn't particularly like Obama.

And that might be true. They might not like each other that much. But in politics, that kind of attitude is easily placed aside. Reagan didn't like Bush 41 back in 1980 but he didn't want to put another President (Ford) on the ticket. Nobody liked Romney 4 years ago but everyone from McCain to Huckabee got behind him this year. Kerry didn't like Edwards when he chose him for the ticket. Hillary is serving under Obama after that contentious primary. Bush savaged McCain in 2000 and 4 years later McCain is not only campaigning for Bush, but against his friend John Kerry.

No train wreck tonight. Whatever he wants to say, however half-heartedly he may genuinely feel about Obama, he'll sell a 2nd Obama term to America tonight and probably do it very well. Even if he only mentions his name a few times.

Although I will predict that is the Republican response. 'He barely mentioned his name'. Trying to downplay Bubba's endorsement because they know that it will matter. That was my criticism of Chris Christie's speech on Romney, where he didn't mention Romney until about 20 minutes in. But people didn't know Romney that well and they know Obama. If you're an undecided voter, you wonder if if Obama can be like Clinton in his 2nd term.

It was just an off hand comment-and more like wishful thinking. Maybe he'll talk to an empty chair.

Mitt's holed up in a 4 million dollar mansion in Woodstock VT getting ready for the debates. He said Michelle is a fine First Lady and he didn't want to comment on her slam the door behind you success comment.

I am hoping it is Biden that brings an empty chair.

I'm one of the few people that actually like Biden. I think his 'gaffes' are total exaggerations in lieu of comedians/satirists having the sack to make fun of a Black President. Or in the media's case, to criticize to any meaningful degree.

That's how the media show their 'impartiality', by piling on Biden.

I'm not sure what I find more amusing: Obama's speech being moved indoors due to "empty seats" or Democratic delegates booing God and Jerusalem being put back in their party platform.

Thank God (I'm not afraid to put that in) Mayor Menino's speech wasn't televised. At least I hope it wasn't.

It's really not fair that Eva Longoria is so beautiful and is dating Mark Sanchez.

I pledge allegiance to the UNITED STATES not the state of Israel. There's no reason to put Jerusalem in any party platform unless you're bowing to AIPAC. They've got the money and guns- let them sort out their own shit.

I saw the video on HuffPo, which was the C-Span video. It was a bit awkward.

Wouldn't this be considered limited government?

There is also a sizable Jewish community, located mainly in South Florida; this is the largest Jewish population in the South and the third largest in the country behind New York and California.
