PART II is HERE

PART III is HERE

I can't imagine that many Kossacks missed Tuesday's #DNC2012 Convention speeches, and even if you started out your evening not planning to watch all night long, chances are, the very first speech of the evening changed your mind, and caused you to stick around for the entire show.

If not, join me below the Fleur-de-kos for embedded videos of each big speech and a link to the DailyKos Transcript Editors diaries with the text of each speech (as prepared prior to delivery on stage).

Enjoy!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
