The quote of the night still goes to Mark Warner through Thomas Jeffesron on Obama:
“I like the dreams of the future, better than the history of the past.”
That quote summarizes in a heartbeat my opinion of GWB versus modern day democrats.
In tonights speech I feel we saw Hillary move away from the politics of her husband and become a full Barack Obama supporter. I felt convinced in her efforts to try an unify the party that McCain feel is not fully unified. She spoke of her beliefs and how an Obama supporter (such as I) can get behind her, as well as her supporters have no reason to fear a President Obama. This speech alone makes me support Hillary fully in her bid for re-election in 2012. I now, as a former staunch Republican in my youth with a bad taste about the Clintons in general, feel proud to call her my senator and not a reverse carpetbagger. I think her speech will carry over to her supporters and at least give them a reason not to vote for John McCain.
The best speaker of the night though goes to keynote speaker Mark Warner. He once again proved to me why I felt he was the best option for President in 2008. He spoke of bipartisanship and how America should not vote as Republicans and Democrats but as rather Americans. His views of politics in America are something special for a liberal American in a conservative state. Hopefully the Dems can carry Virginia in 2008, and carry on further to the Presidency of Barack Obama in 2008. Right now, I am hoping for a Warner ’16 campaign.
