The American presidential election (58)

I know that I’m viewing (on CNN) the Democratic National Convention almost a day after the actual proceedings but I’m really enjoying seeing and hearing the key speeches in full. Day Three was wonderful stuff:
– the roll call of the state delegations with Hillary Clinton halting the process once it was clear that Barack Obama had the majority of the votes resulting in his selection by acclamation
– Bill Clinton who made a marvellous speech giving even stronger endorsement of Obama than his wife the evening before
– Joe Biden making a really effective attack on John McCain in a reworking and improvement of his Springfield address
– Barack Obama himself making a surprise last-minute appearance prior to his own speech on the Convention’s last day
You can see and hear Biden’s speech here and read it here.
