Ok, all I can say is wow......

WOW... the first night had a rather weak first hour and started to build,
but tonight, there was no build up because it started out strong
and remained that way throughout the night....

right from the very start, with Sally Yates to the very end, Jill Biden,
each speaker was very strong.. the one notable exception was Mr. Reliable
himself, Bill Clinton... I think he thrives off an audience and without one,
his speech while serviceable, lacked the energy he usually brings......

If I have one major complaint, it is with CNN... when the commentaries
came on later, with Wolf and gang, each of them praised the roll call done
remotely, HOWEVER, CNN in its infinite wisdom, cut to commercials during
the roll call and the commercials lasted over 7 minutes of the roll call.....
don't fucking praise the roll call when you did over 7 minutes of commercials
during them.. and a couple of minutes were when the roll call wasn't even
on the split screen... man that pissed me off.....

anyway, back to the night itself....

every single speaker hit a home run including Colin Powell....

now I have heard AOC, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes attacked the DNC for
having republicans on the broadcast... ah, the young don't always get it...
Personally, I thought it was genius...lifelong republicans telling America that
they won't vote for the Village Idiot was a great idea... it gives coverage to
many on the right to vote for Biden.. well, hay if Colin Powell, can vote for
Biden, so can I....

and speaking of AOC, I must say, the DNC missed an opportunity with her....
with her popularity with the young, you should have had her at least say,
"I am voting for Joe Biden"... instead of just nominating Bernie Sanders... that was
a seriously missed opportunity for them.....

but the misses were few and far in between...mostly this night moved in a
way that really spoke to people that last night didn't have until the last hour or so......

Now, Tonight, I work from 4:00 to 8:00. So I am going to miss the majority of the
convention, so I will tape it and watch it later.. and give my report tomorrow....

but all in all, this night really was about Joe Biden and his leadership skills...

and given the high praise even from the GOP people, it was a very, very good night....

oh, I almost forget, the video of Biden and John McCain was excellent...
the fact that Cindy McCain voice her approval of Biden was just another GOP
voice giving Biden her praise.....
