A good speech

John Kerry's speech last night, accepting the Democratic Party's nomination for President, was a good solid effort. After Bill Clinton's speech, and Barack Obama's, and Al Sharpton's, there were fears that Kerry's would seem pallid and boring. And after his advance billing as, at best, a plodding, indifferent orator, he seemed much better than good. I could have done without the emphasis (not just last night but throughout the convention) on military matters, but I understand its purposes - convince the undecided that the country is safe in Kerry's hands and, even more importantly, let people compare and contrast Kerry's commitment to America to George Bush's dubious (at best) military record and draw their own conclusions.
