Has anyone been watching any of the Democratic National Convention? Usually, I try to stay away from watching that stuff, even though I'm a super-Democrat (my own description of myself), because it puts me to sleep. But seeing as all the networks were carrying coverage of the convention starting at about 10pm last night, I had no choice. And I'm actually glad I watched.
Bill Clinton's speech last night was extremely powerful. One of his most interesting points was that the Republicans need a divided America to win, and that's why they're so interested in painting such a negative picture of John Kerry. But my favorite part of the speech was when he "mocked" (as the Washington Post put it) President Bush when he said that "Strength and wisdom are not opposing values."
This is something I don't think the Bush administration understands. But that's another story.
Another highlight was when Clinton reminded everyone there that everyone needs to go out and actually cast their vote because Al Gore is the living embodiment of the principle that every vote counts.
Anyway, I really enjoyed the speech, and Hillary's before it. I actually plan on watching Ron Reagan's speech tonight about stem-cell research.
On another note, guess what? I have another date tomorrow night! Yay! I'm pretty stoked. I think we're just gonna go see a movie though, probably The Bourne Supremacy,
since I'm having my wisdom teeth removed on Thursday morning and so I wanted to do something kinda low key. Anyway, its almost time for Charmed
on TNT so I gotta be goin'.
