    Maybe it would be a good idea to keep all ideas in one thread. I believe we did this in 2008.

    I liked the Deval Patrick speech .... the Malley speech not so much.

    Re: Democrat Convention 2012

    OT, could a mod please fix the typo in the thread name?

    This is the Democratic convention, and the Democratic party. An individual affiliated with said party is a Democrat.

    And tonight I'm especially proud to identify as such.

    :D

    Re: Democrat Convention 2012

    One thing they're mentioning in the post-speech coverage is it resonates much more to talk about struggling through your own debt, or your own kid being alive today, or you personally having the opportunity (Duckworth) because of our social safety net... than to talk about how your dad actually once worked for a living.

    Like it or not, there are just many more people who resonate with struggle than with privilege. It's the other side of the "aspirational" story -- not that it's bad to succeed, but that it's good to have struggled. Romney hasn't. He can't really help that, but he hasn't.

    I don't know that anything at the conventions will really move the needle. That'll probably come with the debates, if at all. But it's striking how much more this talked to my gut -- and I'm not from poverty or privilege (which is basically the target audience.)

    For some people watching the convention is like going to church or
    going to a seminar ... good for a :americaflag: boost to one's patriotism - it doesn't hurt.

    The Dem speakers are SO much more intelligent, eloquent and issue-oriented than the GOP speakers were last week it's not even funny.

    Intelligence can not be judged by how well some one speaks in public. Other people write it and they say it, that is how it works.

    What they said -- in general and on balance -- certainly sounded more intelligent, eloquent, and issue-oriented than their counterparts of the first convention night last week. (And I'm still trying to get over Ann Romney's sob story about "hard times" eating canned tuna and pasta.)

    Well then they're smart enough to hire better writers. :)

    Really? I bet they do not even hire the writers someone else does. And, this is where you say they are smart enough to hire people that hire better writers.

    Maybe they sound more intelligent because they are saying what you want to hear?
