I just have to say this after watching the second night of the Democratic National Convention on free (and you get what you pay for these days) TV …
It’s too bad former President Bill Clinton’s presidency has ended up being judged more by a stain on a blue dress rather than what he did as President. With some personal character flaws (and who doesn’t have any of those?) aside, he made for a pretty darn good leader. He led with common sense and “arithmetic.”
On a night when the DNC needed to lay out a host of facts after the country was fed a heapin’ helping of b.s. at the Republican convention last week, Bill Clinton did exactly that tonight in his keynote address. Fact after fact after fact after …
It was an impressive thing to watch. I don’t know how many times I said to the TV screen, “Thank you!”
The question is, how many people will really pay attention to what he said? Hopefully it’ll be enough.
One more thing … it’s times like these I really wish we still had satellite TV. I caught tonight’s DNC coverage on CBS. Oh, how I wish I could have heard Elizabeth Warren’s speech before Clinton’s in its entirety, instead of having CBS News’ talking heads talking over her maybe three-fourths of the way through it.
One thing about Elizabeth Warren: she’s one of us, she speaks the truth, and she has the guts it takes to tell it the way it is. And CBS didn’t show nearly enough of her speech. Sad.
That’s all on that … for now. For what it’s worth.
