So far I haven't been impressed with the convention. From what I've seen, there's been a ridiculous amount of dead time, and not that much in between to get you fired up. Jesse Jackson, Jr seems to be wanting to ape Obama, coming out with one of those speeches where you want to grab him and say, what the heck do you want to do on any of the issues!! David Gergen correctly pointed about that the first 2 hours have been breathtakingly short on specifics!
I'm a little shocked by the nonsensical hero worship, including Caroline Kennedy talking about Ted Kennedy being inspired by Obama! Ted Kennedy is a liberal icon who has achieved so much in life, and the notion that he would be inspired by an amateur like Barack is ... well, ludicrous!
