First Night of Convention

By now, we all should have known what Bill Clinton was capable of. I guess four years of an Idiot  will make you appreciate a guy who knows WTF he is talking about. Luckily, Kerry knows stuff, too. Anyway, President Clinton did awesome in his speech, and hopefully it will motivate everyone in Our Party, as well as Independents and common sense Republicans (yes, there are a few of them left), to vote for Kerry/Edwards and the Democrats in November. President Al Gore also gave a great speech. He is a great man, and its hard to imagine how great America would be doing if Florida knew how to count all the votes. President Jimmy Carter also did a very nuanced speech, speaking from his heart and the Christian values that define him. I can't understand why people dislike President Carter, a man who used his position of President to do so many great things for people once his term was over. Congressman Bob Menendez of New Jersey also gave a pretty good speech, as did Texas Congressman Jim Turner, who has said he will probably run for either U.S. Senator or Governor in 2006.

I am really excited about tomorrow. For a list of speakers, go to Dems2004.org.
