Clinton’s Speech

My immediate thought was that it was really, really well constructed. The beginning lines, to paraphrase, that she didn’t work her whole life and campaign for 18 months to put a Republican in the White House, was pitch perfect. For the rest of the speech, every section built up to either an Obama plug or an attack on John McCain, which I suspect was to keep the media from falling into a “she talked a lot about herself” meme.

Anyway, I ate it up, I thought she did an amazing job, I can’t imagine there could be any serious rifts between actual Democrats at this point, and like Ta-Nehisi said, I was actually disappointed when it ended. I wanted more.
