It has been an epic week of the Democratic National Convention. This is my first time ever watching the DNC and it's solely because of Sen. Barack Obama
. The main speeches were incredible: Sen. Ted Kennedy
, John Lewis, Michelle Obama
, Bill Clinton
, Sen. Hillary Clinton
, and of course Sen. Barack Obama.
Ted Kennedy is truly an icon. John Lewis is one of our greatest American heroes. Michelle Obama was poised and classy without comprising her integrity -- if people still want to find a reason to not like her, then so be it. Good 'ole Bill had to bite the bullet and give it up for Obama.
Hillary gave the best speech I ever heard from her. I loved the Harriet Tubman
analogy, "If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there’s shouting after you, keep going. Don’t ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.
" A couple things though, Clinton called Tubman a New Yorker, which she wasn't, she was a native of Maryland. In addition, supposedly Tubman never even said this quote. Oh, well, Clinton lied about Bosnia, NAFTA, Obama's stance on healthcare, and Iraq -- you know how she do!
Obama delivered another dynamic speech. We are less than three months away from the election. One day I feel like it will happen, the next day I'm doubtful...you know the ways of folk and that train ain't ever late!
Enjoy Labor Day Weekend and I'll be back Tuesday.
