I'd say Mario Cuomo, and Jesse Jackson both gave much better key note speeches at DNC in 84 and 92 than Obama did in 2004.

And yes I think Obama was good in 2004.

Warner was uneventful this year.

And Clinton did not impress me in 1988.

I loved Mario. I thought he would be president.

It was a lovely tribute.

John Legend is kind of hot.

And the better man lost in 2000 and 2004. I thought yesterday while I watched Clinton, Jesus we went from this to W? What a fucking nightmare. (And no, deep, I don't equate W with O thank you very much)

John McCain just had a nice commercial congratulating Obama for receiving the nomination and said something about him receiving it on this historic day.

I guess he didn't think the day was so historic when he voted against the MLK day?

I saw the ad too.

Luckily I caught Clinton's replay of the speech later in the evening. Missed it live And I agree. BC to GWB? WTF? The dumbing down of America


I caught the end of Legend/will.i.am's performance. Saw Russert Jr. interview will.i.am, I think on MSNBC. On CNN now, they are showing Kaine giving a speech. I have no idea of the schedule for today's events...


And about the McCain commercial, which I've yet to see... In regards to what anitram said, didn't he veto/vote no on MLK day about 19 times?

I just saw it.
and he said, "we'll be back at it tomorrow, but for tonight, job well done." or something like that.
That was a brilliant strategy. And he probably meant it.

Nice to see Stevie Wonder, but I noticed he didn't play his 1974 #1 song:

You Haven't Done Nothin'

Speaking of music, when Gore came onstage to "Let The Sunshine In" I thought, hmmm, does that choice have anything to do with solar power? And then in his speech Gore makes a reference to solar power!

Otherwise, his speech is kind of boring me. I guess I've been spoiled by all the other amazing speakers.
