  •  She's better than almost anyone in the Senate (0+ / 0-)

    which is pretty astounding, when you think about it.  If Hillary were as good as Michelle, she'd be the nominee and ahead by 10 right now.

    •  Pretty ironic comment (0+ / 0-)

      Obviously you posted before seeing Hillary's speech.  

      Don't like XOM and OPEC? What have YOU done to reduce your oil consumption? Hot air does NOT constitute a renewable resource!

      •  Obviously ... not (0+ / 0-)

        Hillary has many fine attributes, and that was a well-written speech delivered about as well as Hillary can deliver one.  But she is not a particularly good speaker -- certainly not compared to her husband and Michelle's husband, who along with Ronald Reagan are the best three prominent ones we've had at the Presidential level since Kennedy.  (At least Clinton was up there when he could keep from going on at Gorbachevian length.)  The amazing thing about Michelle's speech is that its delivery and content was in a league with her husband's.  That was truly unexpected.

        So, to extend my previous remark: if Hillary was as good a speaker as Michelle was last night, Barack might not have even bothered to run.  It was Hillary's deficiencies as a politician -- having learned the craft late as a participant rather than an observer -- that did her in this year.
