View GLENNBR's food & exercise for this day
Watched most of the convention last night. I particularly appreciated the Kennedy tribute. Many people see Kennedy in a negative light when, the truth is, he is responsible for Medicare, almost all of the minimum wage increases over the past 30 years, pel grants and a host of other things that many Americans take for granted.
I thought that Michelle's speech seemed a little forced at times. I really have a problem with the extent that the campaign feels they need to "handle" her. If you see some of her earlier speeches during the Iowa caucuses you can see a much more passioned appeal for Barack than she gave last night.
