I thought Kerry's speech was great. Not Obama-great, but just as good as Edwards' the night before. And I love the themes from previous speeches that Kerry worked into his- it made the convention a whole, rather than a scattershot of ideas. He was forceful, sincere, and even a little angry. I was impressed by his aggressive rhetoric, which I think solidified Democrats while dispelling the idea of Kerry as indecisive. It was brilliant to limit negative attacks until Kerry did it- the reverse of CW, and very clever.
I think we really are going to win this one.
