It was the moment that brought the voters to their feet and it was the moment that broke Romney's back.  

"This convention is done. This will be the moment that probably re-elected Barack Obama." -- GOP operative Alex Castellanos.
"45 minutes into the speech, a veteran GOP operative conceded, "The Big Dog brought his A-Game -- folksy, fiery and full-throated, right down to the lip bite."  NY Daily News

And the crowd goes crazy!


Tweets per minute:  Clinton's speech: 22,087 versus Romney's 14,289.   And this, even though the speech faced heavy competition from the kickoff of the NFL season.

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.
