PLEASE NOTE I WAS REAL BUSY TODAY AT WORK.... THIS RECAP IS A MEMO I DID FOR SOME OF OUR CLIENTS ... SORRY NOT AS IN DEPTH BUT IT GETS THE POINT ACCROSS I SUPPOSE!
"Last evening the Convention was all about Hillary Clinton and whether her remarks would reflect on her support for the party’s nominee, Barack Obama. Republicans were suggesting that Senator Clinton would be tepid in her support of her Democratic rival. By all impartial accounts and based upon our observations from the floor of the Convention, Senator Clinton did a superb job. Indeed, many of us who have followed Hillary Clinton for years believe that this was her finest speech. Firm and self confident, Senator Clinton reviewed the central themes of her campaign and asked her supporters to set aside their disappointment over her loss of the nomination and close ranks “as a single party, with a single purpose…We are on the same team.” In one of her most memorable statements, she said, “I want you to ask yourselves: Were you in this just for me or were in it for all the people in this country who feel invisible?”
While the McCain campaign has attempted to claim Senator Clinton did not fully endorse Senator Obama, our view from the convention floor was quite the opposite. She ignited the hall and left no doubt of her support for the Illinois Senator. As many supporters told us, she did exactly what she needed to do. Former President Clinton speaks tonight and again all eyes will be on his performance and his level of enthusiasm for the Obama/Biden ticket.
Last week we also heard from former Democratic Governor of Virginia Mark Warner. Warner’s speech was more mild and less attack oriented than the traditional keynote address. Former Governor Warner argued that this election was “a race for the future.” This theme leaves voters to contrast Obama, 47, to John McCain, 72, and asks who is best suited to lead in a world of dynamic change, the economy and technology. This is similar to the “future/past” argument that Bill Clinton used against the much older George H.W. Bush in 1992.
Tonight, as noted above, former President Clinton will address the delegates as well as Obama running mate, Joe Biden. Each of these will be closely watched and we will report our views tomorrow."
