Given the history, the attention, the stakes, the narrative, and the multiple goals…Hillary’s speech tonight was the best political speech I’ve ever seen. Several huge moments delivered in a personal, direct fashion. Historic, by any standard.
This is a rhetorical murderers row, with Bill Clinton and Obama coming up and facing a very high bar. The GOP is going to be the Washington Generals of political speechifyin’ by the end of next week.
If Bill’s speech is anything like Hillary’s, and a true Obama/Clinton coalition forms, there’s no way McCain can win. No way.
Also, I’m not much of a Kucinich guy, and I don’t know how his speech was in person, but on paper it’s devastating. He says it all. And I love the Orange Alert reference.
