Convention

Bill Clinton is still the best.

Biden performed well.

Even John Kerry sounded good.

Can Barack top them tonight?

I think he will, but I am curious to see what kind of speech he gives. Will it be broad and inspirational (I think it should be), or will it be a "workman-like" policy filled speech as some of his people have been saying.

There will be criticism either way. If he goes inspirational, critics will charge we still don't know what Obama really stands for. If he goes policy, critics will say he missed an opportunity to rally the nation and wasn't being himself. I'd take the first criticism.

That was weird... didn't mean to delete the last post... anyway,

Obama has the unfortunate position of being damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't...The GOP strategists will undermine him either way he goes.

I think you're right though, go with the inspirational "Yes we can" speech. There'll be plenty of time for policy speeches in the coming months. He needs to keep the people excited.
