I don't think I have ever heard anything quite as loud as the cheer that erupted at the end of President Obama's speech here at Time Warner Cable Arena. It was a human thunderclap. Personally, I was a little surprised to see the president didn't try to best Clinton's—or even Michelle Obama's—speech. What he offered up was the same kind of speech he's been giving for months now, with some extra, and very welcome, nods to climate change, and marriage equality, and using military money to nation build at home. But what I think this means is that President Obama likes the conversation the Republicans are having right now, because he thinks he can win that conversation.
What do you think? Were you moved by this speech? Was it all downhill after Gabby Giffords? Will tomorrow morning's jobs report add or detract from this speech? Was it a successful convention? Could you have used more hope, or less Biden? I'm about to go navigate the partying streets of Charlotte; it's up to you to figure it out while I dodge bootleg Obama t-shirt salesmen and angry anti-abortion protesters.
