I thought the speeches at the Democratic National Convention were outstanding. I cried during Michelle Obama's and blubbered all during Beau Biden's speeches. He's being deployed to Iraq this fall. How can the State Attorney General be sent? I hope he doesn't have to go because the others will be back, but that's too soon, I know. Please don't let anything happen to him. Joe Biden already lost his wife and daughter and almost his two sons.
Barack Obama's speech last night was so good it could have been written by Aaron Sorkin. I hope he did have input into it, and he could have. It was right out of West Wing and The American President, which Sorkin wrote, but was not fiction. It looks as if we might have a president like Jeb Bartlett only better because it's real life!
I don't plan to watch the Republican Convention because they'll just piss me off, but I did notice that McSame chose Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his VP running mate. This will be interesting.
