I guess the most important thing that doesn’t get mentioned often enough about the Democratic Convention in Denver is how well organized it was. And they were lucky to be there a week ahead of Hurricane Gustav‘s landfall in Louisiana.

The Acceptance Speech event was especially amazing falling on the anniversary of MLK’s event at the Lincoln Memorial 40some years ago and drawing a great crowd of 80,000+ to Invesco Field and however many thousands across the country to all sizes of TV sets in all kinds of ordinary locations.

I’m a grizzled cynic and a 72 year old Canadian citizen and my eyes were brimming with tears for much of the night. This kind of political drama sure makes Harper & Co look like small beer!
