DNC Day 1 Wrapup

leave a comment »

Michelle Obama finished speaking not too long ago. She’s been called Barack’s secret weapon, and she clearly is—that was one of the better-delivered political speeches I’ve ever seen, especially given the difficult dual contexts of rehabilitating Michelle’s public image and winning over still-suspicious Hillary voters. She was quite literally perfect.

I was almost too nervous to watch the Ted Kennedy tribute and speech; contrary to the way I saw it described on television, it seemed to me that Kennedy was extremely frail and liable to collapse at any moment.

But perhaps the most serious news tonight is the revelation of an apparent assassination plot: at first it seemed to be merely two meth addicts with rifles, but now “at least” four people are under arrest
