As the Election Turns #7: Listen to Bill, America!
And now another episode of As the Election Turns, the continuing drama of politics in America during a presidential election year.
Today I'm sharing three great speeches from the second night of the Democratic National Convention:
Women's health advocate Sandra Fluke, who painted two very different pictures of our country with Obama and Romney as our president. I loved her line, "An America in which our president, when he hears a young woman has been verbally attacked, thinks of his daughters — not his delegates or his donors."
Elizabeth Warren, a down-to-earth and extremely likable Senate candidate from Massachusetts who will hopefully defeat Republican - and former Cosmopolitan centerfold - Scott Brown in November.
And, finally, there was President Bill Clinton once again basking in the spotlight and an audience's total adoration as he delivered a long and brilliant speech with his usual folksy charm. He just told it like it is - refuting every Republican lie while explaining Obama's policies in an easy-to-understand way. Hopefully America was listening.
