That should help a lot

After hearing Hillary Clinton's speech tonight, the press looks kind of silly for all of the bandwidth they wasted wondering about the Barack-Hillary rift.

That was one of the best speeches I've ever heard her give. As she was speaking, it crossed my mind that if she'd brought that to the campaign trail, Barack Obama might have been speaking tonight and Clinton on Thursday.

Bill Clinton will also be great tomorrow night. I heard him speak in Worcester two years ago at a Deval Patrick rally and he was fantastic. He is a uniquely compelling speaker and I'd be stunned if he doesn't command the crowd tomorrow. There is no doubt in my mind that he will bring the wood to John McCain while making a strong case for Obama.

There's been some discussion in the press that this convention is too much about the Clintons, but it's the Clintons' people (i.e. working class white Democrats) that can lock this thing up for Obama. Two nights of Hillary and Bill pounding McCain and validating Obama could go a long way toward that end.
