The RNC and DNC are over, however Governor Palin seems to be dominating the headlines lately as the media mulls over whether she is a good choice or bad choice. I have already stated my opinion in a previous post, and on Twitter so I won’t bother to do that again however I think the Governor needs to be thoroughly examined by the media because if any of the rumors floating around are true, she could be the worst VP in history. There are less than 60 days to go to the election with Senator Obama holding a slim lead in the polls, what is his next step? How can he gain a significant lead over John McCain or does he even need to do that? I believe the Obama campaign is in a good position, even with the Palin “bump”, but Senator McCain is still losing however this could change very quickly. Senator Obama needs to continue to attack Senator McCain aggressively while reminding his supporters to keep on fighting to ensure a win in November.

Today is an amazing day, Senator Obama is the democratic nominee and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The historic nature of this day hasn’t hit me yet but I know I will be telling stories about this day to future generations about how a nation was changed with the nomination of a single man:

With all the great speeches going on at the DNC, people often overlook the regular people that are attending the convention and their support of Senator Obama. Why do you support Senator Obama? I have often mentioned why I support the Senator but here are a few of the hundred’s of video’s on YouTube DNC Group of people at the convention expressing their opinions:

My aim to stay up and watch the DNC didn’t quite pan out last night, it started at 12am and I watched the first hour on TV. For the second hour I was listening to NPR on my PSP. For the rest of the convention I was fast asleep but the first thing I did when I woke up this morning was listen to Michelle Obama’s speech. My first impression: WOW!
Michelle Obama is as eloquent as her husband if not more, she accurately gave people a better understanding of Senator Obama while reinforcing the themes of the Obama campaign. She touched on the journey their family have taken and most importantly focused on the plight of the middle class family in modern day America. Another highlight last night was Senator Kennedy’s speech which you can find here.

Well today has flown by for some reason and I am pretty sure I didn’t get to do everything I should have done, anyway I’m going to move down stairs to watch the convention as soon as I make this post. First of all I wanted to apologize to The Griper for not completely replying to all of his comments today even though he spends some time on our discussions on various political issues, if some of you have not stopped by his blog, I encourage you to do so because you will find some truly though provoking writing.
Today, I thought I would try something new; I am going to “twitter” the convention basically meaning I will update my Twitter account with a 140 character sentence every 5 minutes. This is obviously nothing compared to actually being at the convention but its close enough for those people who live outside of America like myself. You can follow these updates on the right hand sidebar or alternatively open this page and refresh it every now and then while you are browsing.
I stumbled upon a few good YouTube video’s today but the most thought provoking of them was those created by people expressing why they are Democrats. Have you ever thought about it to those of my liberal/progressive friends and to those conservatives, why are you not a Democrat? One reason for myself is that I understand the Democratic party to be more forward looking in the sense that they readily embrace the future of America while not clinging to the past as some Republicans like to do:
