So Good It Hurts

Michael Tomasky on Bill Clinton’s Democratic Convention speech:

Holy smokes. That was the best political speech more or less ever. There wasn’t a thing he didn’t touch on, and there wasn’t a thing he didn’t just blast out of the park. His carriage and delivery nailed it for partisans and for persuadables.

Here’s the speech.

  1. Very good speech, but I wouldn’t say he touched on everything. We are still hearing nothing about the hush hush drone-war in Pakistan.

  2. Staffan says:

    And back in 1993 he made it possible for lower income people to get mortgages they couldn’t afford which led to the global financial crisis. Which makes him the single most influential person of our time – in a really bad way. But yeah, he’s got charisma and a way with words and who doesn’t fall flat for that?
