Dem. convention

Although the Clintons' speeches were effective (Hillary's especially), of the main speakers so far, John Kerry, surprisingly, has delivered the most effective critique of McCain. Kerry was outstanding. Too bad he didn't display that kind of oratorical form more often in '04.

And I must add a word about Jim Leach, former Republican congressman from Iowa, whose speech on the first night was excellent (and the text of which would doubtless repay reading).
