The Measure of a Man

"I believe the measure of a man is not the road he travels but the choices he makes along that road."
Joe Biden delivered a very inspiring speech to the DNC last night. He finally tackled some of the specific ways that Obama will change this country for the better. Analysts always spend the evening telling us what speech-makers don't say or forget to say; but it's hard to deny what Biden said last night. Proof that Obama has a penchant for making great choices. Joe Biden was definitely a great choice. Read his entire transcript here.

In other DNC news, President Bill Clinton also spoke at the convention. His speech was the perfect compliment to Hillary's speech the night before. He filled in the gaps and said all the things that the pundits said that Hillary missed. His speech opened with the fact that he was there to support Obama, thereby melting all of the GOP-infused tension both at the DNC and within the Democratic Party.

"Hillary told us in no uncertain terms that she'll do everything she can to elect Barack Obama. That makes two of us. Actually that makes 18 million of us — because, like Hillary, I want all of you who supported her to vote for Barack Obama in November."
His speech was powerful, interesting and heartwarming all at the same time. And didn't leave any room for doubt that the "rift" is over. Read his entire speech here.

So long PUMAs!
