Democratic National Convention
September 7, 2012 by staff
Democratic National Convention, That’s a wrap. The Democratic National Convention is over and the sprint — 60 days left as of tomorrow! — to the November election is on. But before you start running, rest a while and read our picks for the winners and the losers from the final night of the Democratic convention.
One person you won’t see in winners and losers is President Obama. His speech was certainly not among the best he has ever delivered — the #1 seed in those rankings is his 2007 Iowa Jefferson-Jackson dinner address — and, at times, it felt more like a State of the Union address than a convention acceptance speech. It was workmanlike more than inspirational.
That said, Obama always faces a very high bar when he speaks since he is rightly regarded as one of the best (if not the best) political orator in the country. The speech will certainly send convention-goers back to their home states excited about the final 60 days of the campaign and there were enough appeals to the political center to make the case that Obama is the right home for them.
In short: It won’t be the sort of historically memorable speech that former President Bill Clinton delivered Wednesday night. But neither will it be remembered as a colossal flop. If we had a category between winning and losing — we don’t — that’s where Obama’s speech would fall.
Without further ado, we present our winners and losers. Have picks of your own? The comments section is open for business.
