Random DNC thoughts

Joe Biden is yet to speak tonight, but here are some thoughts I had while watching Bill Clinton and John Kerry:

1)  I would totally do Chelsea Clinton…

2)  If he was able to, I am pretty sure Bill Clinton could run for and win the Presidency again.  The man is just so popular its scary.  Also, when he speaks, its like liquid goodness pours from his vocal cords.  I loved his line about “The world looks to the power of our example, not the example of our power.”  Thats my contribution to line of the night.

3)  Lastly, if John Kerry was as compelling and enthusiastic in his speeches four years ago as he was tonight, we might not be in this mess right now.

I know its the Democratic Convention and everyone speaking is a Democrat, but the place is absolutely jumping.  I really can’t wait to see Barack’s speech tomorrow night.

    I agree with you on the Kerry point- he was a different speaker tonight than he was during his own presidential campaign. He’s probably been watching Obama do his warmups to get some tips. As for Bill, he is still quite a good speaker. I’m not sure he’d be able to win this time around only because of the tantrums he threw during the primary about his wife’s candidacy. If I was turned off by his behavior (and I damn near worshiped him during his second term/post-retirement), then I can only imagine others were t00.

    LE, enough of your silly banter—let’s talk about one of the legitimately nonpartisan nuggets of wisdom of trader’s post:
    You’re totally on point with your first bullet. I’d be Commander in Chief of Chelsea Clinton’s oval office any day of the week.

    Kerry wins:

    “To those who still believe in the myth of a maverick instead of the reality of a politician, I say, let’s compare Senator McCain to candidate McCain. Candidate McCain now supports the wartime tax cuts that Senator McCain once denounced as immoral. Candidate McCain criticizes Senator McCain’s own climate change bill. Candidate McCain says he would now vote against the immigration bill that Senator McCain wrote. Are you kidding? Talk about being for it before you’re against it.”

    Let’s hear more of that in the coming weeks. Beltway Bob, still clinging to the idea that McCain is some independent “Maverick”?
