Your party's convention:
Are you happy with it? Do you think your party did a great job with the convention? Any criticisms?
I think our party did a great job, an outstanding job. I am of great hopes that it will result in more democrats and those actual Independents in the true sense of the word - all those who would rather have Obama win the election rather than R&R team win - to get out and actually vote.
I think Obama's speech was fine, effective. I would have liked it to be closer in effectiveness to Clinton's, but I also realize that would be practically impossible.
Everyone did a terrific job, as good as could have ever been expected from Democrats I think - especially the beautiful Michelle Obama, our First Lady.
However, it's not over yet, not even nearly. There are still the debates.
Everything could be fabulous, the debates could be won hands down and still, the President could wake up the mornig after the election as a private citizen rather than as President of the U.S.
If enough conservatives will vote for anyone (such as R&R) rather than have Obama serve another term as they have repeatedly stated - we remain in deep trouble because I suspect there won't be the same voter turn out for Obama as there was in the last election.
Even from those who still vastly rather Obama win over R&R. Wanting it and wanting it enough to face the prospect of voting day and all that means after often a long day at work - that would be the question. Are they willing to go through the process again, or will they assume that everyone else will do so and that will be enough for Obama to win?
I fear a lot of voter laziness which could lose the President the re-election.
I so hope I'm incorrect.
I still suspect it will be a very tight race, for exactly that reason.
How do you feel your party preference did at it's convention?
