Blogging Bill

Let the man speak!! (but I'm glad they kept him from speaking since I was dashing in from the car so I could see it on TV instead of sitting in the car listening to it on the radio.)

First thing he said (after thank you and sit down please) is to mention Obama. Strong work.

Nice props to Biden.

Mention of Hillary's magnificent speech last night choked me up.

"Hillary's going to do everything she can to elect Barack Obama. That makes two of us. Actually that makes 18 million of us."

"I want all of you who supported her to vote for Barack Obama in November"

Doesn't get much clearer than that.

" Everything I've done . . . has convinced me that Barack Obama is the man for this job."

clear gwasp? (ok, that was mean.)

"he hit it out of the park"

Biden brings the national security leadership piece.

"Barack Obama is ready to lead America and restore American leadership in the world."

"Barack Obama is ready to be president of the United States."

Again, doesn't get much clearer than that.

"Diplomacy first and military force as a last resort."

stand up to adversaries when he can't convert them.

like the blue tie. He doesn't need the red power tie.

power of our example, not the example of our power. Bush slam!!

Hillary, sit forward! That's a really bad angle on you.

Bill mentions the autism parents too.

"Yes, he can." (ok, I'm choking up again)

"First, we have to elect him." God, isn't that the key? Are we going to give the Republicans a hat trick?

Having a duh moment when I saw how close the Colorado delegation is to the front. Oh, yeah, we're in Colorado, aren't we?

Sounds like Bill's choking up. "Sixteen years ago . . ."

" . . . too young and too inexperienced to be commander in chief. Sound familiar?"

Hmmm, hadn't realized that Clinton was younger (45) in 92 than Obama is now (47).

Like the flags, instead of the signs from last night.

Chevy Chase?!?

James Carville's on fire. He's having a ball. Last night Hillary, now Bill.

I especially liked "power of our example, not the example of our power." Good rhetoric (in the positive sense of the word). I'll have to watch this online.
