Good speech

So, I found myself watching the DNC tonight. I really liked the very touching end of Jimmy Carter's speech:

"But I am not discouraged. I really am not. I do not despair for our country. I never do. I believe tonight, as I always have, that the essential decency and compassion and common sense of the American people will prevail."

However, much as he's a liar and a slimeball, I have to be honest: Bill Clinton is a fantastic speaker. He's sure got some excellent speechwriters. I seriously might have to get a transcript.

I don't like the man, but I respect his talent as an orator. It's just darned nice to hear a politician who can actually articulate well after four years of Bush's nasal, muddled twang.
