| Bill, I knew he could dig deep, he had it in him outstanding, personal speech in support of Barack and Joe!!! |
I loved everything that I saw today the official nomination of Barack and Joe!!!! I def. cried during and after Barack's nomination and Hillary did a fabulous job on that!
Con. Patrick Murphy!! I really like him have for the past year. He did really well.
John Kerry gave a fabulous speech!!!! I was very proud and I was so proud of the inclusion of military personel. I only wish Barrack had thought to thank JK as he did all the other *key* speakers tonight; I'm sure the excitement of the moment Barack forgot him but I hope someone reminds him to thank him tomorrow. Think I'll email the campaign, anyway great all the way around!
I didn't see Richardson.
I loooved Beau and Joe Biden Fabulous speeches by both! Beautiful family and it definitely was a treat to see Barack today. I can barely hold my excitement until tomorrow as they recreate the Roman site of where democracy began!!! Cool beans!!
You're right, Richardson didn't speak tonight. Had to go eat pasta so assumed he spoke and did well, but Classic Bill Clinton took over.
I forgot to mention Patrick Murphy. He was awesome too.
My eyes got watery too when Hillary and NY clinched the nomination for Barack. It makes me sad that my grandparents and relatives that passed on aren't here to see this, but they are enjoying history being made above.
I know we have agreed and disagreed about Senator Kerry and what happened before, but I agree with you. Tonight he gave an excellent speech. MSNBC did a split screen showing Hillary and Chelsea, and Michelle and Teresa sitting together. That was unity right there. It wasn't shown on TV (unless you saw it on C-SPAN or PBS, but there was a part in Kerry's speech where he acknowledged Obama's uncle, a humble looking white man sitting next to Michelle. It was touching moment.
I wished he had thanked JK too, and he got caught in the moment, but NBC showed him hugging Kerry and shaking his hand. I am sure Obama knows what a hard core supporter/surrogate he has been.
And last but not least I loved Beau (I think he is going to Iraq soon) and the embrace he had with dad Joe. That was very emotional, with his family and Mama Biden (I like that name) and Obama showing up in the end was icing on the cake.
I can't wait until tomorrow night. J-Hud, John Legend, Stevie Wonder (I think Sheryl Crow), Will.i.am redoing "Yes We Can," Shawn Johnson leading the pledge, and Ali there, it's going to be a night to remember.
