Convention Shows Democrats Finally Growing Spine Back

After almost 2 decades since the Republican party's Contract "On" America, and 8 monstrous years of George W.

That doesn't mean we can sit back and trust them to stay on track pulling the country out of the GOP gutter but it gives a whiff of that stuff Senator Obama keeps mentioning, that quality we had almost forgotten, HOPE!

Last night was the 2nd of the 2008 Democratic Convention in Denver, CO. There were many good speeches,(lots of sappy music, and boiler-plate pro-America stuff) but some real gems too.

This was crucial and she did a great job:
