There have been two really good speeches. Both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were great.
I have been switching between the 3 cable news outlets (CNN, MSNBC, Fox "News"). I much prefer MSNBC. I enjoy Chris Matthews and their panelists seem the most interesting. Fox is a joke, I have no idea why people (other than hard core right wing types) watch it.
Ben Afleck: We tend to judge movie folk by their choices in roles and relationships. By that yardstick, I assumed that he was a moron. It turns out that he is quite intelligent and well spoken. He could have a career in politics if he chose.
Ron Reagan: He is best when he is being humorous. It's hard to take him seriously when he talks about things he considers important, like the stem cell issue.
Michael Moore is way over-exposed at the convention. I don't think that he is helping himself or the Democrats. Did he really GO to Michigan State? He used to rotate through different baseball caps. Couldn't he wear a Michigan hat once in a while?
I really like Joe Trippi.
