Thoughts on the Democratic National Convention:
-Barack Obama's speech tonight was dull, dull, dull. No snappy slogan, no catchy refrain, and if he says the word "change" one more time, my head will explode.
-Bill Clinton was so happy being in the spotlight again last night. No matter what you think of him, you have to admit that he is an incredibly compelling speaker. He can read the phone book out loud and still bring an audience to its feet.
- Joe Biden for VP? Really? Was that the best they could come up with? Joe Biden has run for President unsuccessfully so many times. It seems to me that voters just don't like him. I can't imagine that having Biden on the ticket is going to bring Obama a lot of new votes.
-Who was that unhappy looking woman with the red hair sitting next to Bill Clinton during Hillary's speech? That was a choice seat- she must be someone important in the party. It was odd how annoyed she seemed every time Clinton tried to talk to her.
- OK, I'll admit that the tangerine pantsuit was an unfortunate fashion choice, but I thought that Hillary Clinton's speech was terrific, particularly when she talked about the political gains that women have made in the last century. I voted for Hillary, hoping that this election would focus on the needs of women and open the door to stronger female leadership in this country. Men have been allowed to screw things up for far too long. It's high time that women seized the reins of power and worked to undo the damage that has been done by centuries of unchecked male aggression.
