Democratic Convention, Night Three

“Don’t boo, vote.”

Those were President Obama’s words when he mentioned the Republican candidate’s name during his speech tonight. The exhortation encapsulates the sentiment behind all the evening’s speeches, from VP Joe Biden through former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg and VP-nominee Senator Tim Kaine culminating in a wonderful speech by President Barack Obama.

Tonight was focused on security, Hillary’s readiness to be Commander in Chief and Donald Trump’s complete lack of qualifications to be the same. Senator Kaine showed an ability to mimic Trump’s “Believe me” catchphrase, Veep Joe Biden spoke from the heart when he ticked off Trump’s many failings, and ex-Mike Bloomberg just demolished Trump’s claim to honesty in his business dealings. Then Barack came out and made the strongest case he could for Hillary Clinton and her qualifications to be President of the United States.
