Bill steps up to the plate...
...and hits it out of the park. (Thanks, Mark, for the analogy!)
I made the call...that the Clintons would support the party and get behind their nominee, and Bill's speech tonight was astounding. He focused on Sen. Obama, he highlighted the differences in the economy, and said that with the addition of Biden as a running mate, the foreign policy questions should be put to rest. The question of Obama's youth was also raised when Clinton said that they said the same thing about him in his first presidential campaign.
It also showed what a powerful speaker Clinton still is--man, can he work a crowd, or what?! No matter what you think of his politics, the guy is one helluva speaker.
I got to see Evan Bayh's brief speech on our local PBS station, and I think he did a good job. Strong, forceful, very supportive of his party's nominee. Lookin' good, Evan! Mark my words...watch out for this guy!
I promise that I'll let up with the political entries soon. I'm just a little energized while watching this convention and these speeches. Thank you for bearing with me, and I'll do my best to soon get back to normal. Or what passes for normal, when it comes to me. <grin>

Breaking news! McCain will announce his running mate either Thursday or Friday. I haven't followed this as closely as the Dem possibilities, but I would suspect Mitt Romney, for the economic boost. I wouldn't put any bets on that, though, not like my bets on Biden. From what I read, there's no love lost and no chemistry between McCain and Romney.
