Do you realize that there is nothing on TV other than the convention(s)? Especially when the nominees are speaking? Well, at least not your basic air-wave TV.
So...this means that we got to watch Obama's speech last night...and it likely means that we get to watch McCain's speech next Thursday.
I gotta say that Obama is quite the orator. He can work the crowd into a frenzy. And he could probably do it by reading the ingredient list of twinkies if he wanted to.
I also thought he did extremely well at throwing jabs at McCain--Obama did it in such a way that it wasn't like he was picking on his opponent--it was more like "awww, don't pick on the big football player, it's not his fault he doesn't know how to read."
