I thought it was cool, but I would have been REALLY great if they had played Streets. I probably would have been dancing in my living room if that had happened.

Yeah, I thought streets would have been more fitting. Also I didn't see why they felt a need to have it play the same refrain of the song 15 or so times. There are in fact other parts to the song...

They did the same thing last night after Edwards' speech with Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke." I like that song, but it got old pretty fast.

Exactly. That "had" been my favorite song. What a shame it's now ruined for me!

I think its an omen. Beautiful day has essentially become the official song of the New England Patriots and now its Kerry's turn to win the "Super Bowl"!

Yeah, that was cool. I also liked the use of No Surrender.

Assuming Bono was at the convention during Kerry's speech, can you imagine how surreal that must be? Not just the fact that he's Irish and it's this huge American political event, but the song must be personal to Bono.

Wonder if the Republican convention will get permission to use any U2 music

If they want to use it, I don't think U2 would object. From what I understand, they don't have to go and ask for permission from the artists, however artists can ask them to not use it if they want.
