Giving credit where credit is due

My favorite quote about Bill Clinton's speech tonight came from Steve Schmidt, one of MSNBC's Republican commentators, who said:

It was extraordinary. It was a virtuoso political performance -- there's no other politician in America in the last generation that could hold the attention of a crowd, have them yelling and screaming, speaking for 3 quarters of an hour. I mean, I wish to God, as a Republican, we had someone on our side who had the ability to do that. We don't. It would be great if we did. Just a[n] amazing performance.

Loved it that Clinton brought jokes. Loved it even more that he did so while breaking down actual policy.

  1. I think I quoted this elsewhere, but my friend Nathan said it best:

    "In the alternate-universe America without a 22nd Amendment, Bill Clinton is *cruising* to his sixth term as President right now"
