Watch live video here and join the conversation as we live blog the 2012 Democratic convention
8:04 PM PT:
"Big Dog" trending, without a hashtag.
@maddow via web

8:04 PM PT: I'll guarantee you Mitt Romney wishes he could strop the big dog to his roof and drive him to Canada.

8:05 PM PT: "Let me ask you something. Are we better off because President Obama fought for health care reform? You bet we are."

8:08 PM PT: Clinton tears apart the $716 billion Romney-Ryan Medicare lie. Says when he heard Paul Ryan slam it: "I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, because that $716 billion, is the same amount, to the dollar, that he had in his own budget. You got to admit one thing. It takes some brass to attack a guy for what you did." Brings down house again.

8:09 PM PT: Clinton is so damn good. No wonder they were so scared of him that they impeached him.

8:09 PM PT: I don't think Bill Clinton is ever going to stop. And I don't want him to.

8:11 PM PT: Okay, I'm convinced. I'm voting for Barack Obama. Damn, this is a great speech.

8:11 PM PT:
I wonder how Romney & Ryan feel right now for spending all summer building Bill Clinton up

The Teleprompter just ejected itself from the arena.

8:14 PM PT: "Now, let's talk about the debt." He is just getting started. Good, it'll give us enough time to come up with a plan to repeal the 22nd Amendment.

8:16 PM PT: This is special stuff. I mean, have Republicans ever had a president who could talk this long, this intelligently about politics and policy, at least in the television era?

8:17 PM PT:
Dude is talking about Medicaid, budgets, work requirements ... and it is genuinely fun. No one else can do that.
@drgrist via TweetDeck

8:20 PM PT: "We simply can't afford to give the reins of government to someone who will double down on trickle-down."

8:21 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

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.
