Happy Donkeys in Denver

With Barack Obama now officially nominated, Team Donkey is on a roll tonight. Even Sen. John Kerry was speaking effectively from the podium in the convention hall in Denver.

Bill Clinton spoke before Kerry and seemed very much his old confident self. Without a doubt, he did Obama a lot of good tonight. There was not a hint of holding back his best effort. The former president's speech seemed directed at Democrats, and to the whole world watching the broadcast.

In contrast, Hillary Clinton's speech last night seemed mostly directed at women who were in the room. Perhaps she saw that as her mission.

In any event, the convention seems to be accomplishing what it should -- it is reminding the Democrats of what they have in common.
