    Saw 10 minutes of Sanders speech on Monday, saw 10 minutes of Bill's speech last night, both times after watching something else and checking in before going to bed. Meh. I guess a "B", but I'm really not interested.

    I will say that the Dems quashed the Debbie Wasserman Schultz controversy in a hurry. Contrast how they dealt with that crisis--decisive action within hours of the story breaking--with the way the Reps dealt with the plagiarism issue--almost two days of conflicting stories, blame, and excuses.

    I have not watched any of it, but I will say I think its a sad day when Democrats have more principles than the Trump party.
    I'm not a fan of Sanders but I thought the fact that he was booed for endorsing Clinton said a bit about his supporters, and how they expected more principles from him. Contrast that with the reaction Cruz got for saying vote your conscience and well that is the Trump party now. Of course their reaction vs the GOP reaction reinforces my thoughts that Trump will have a much more political capital to spend if, God Forbid, he wins in November which is a terrify thought considering what a demagogue he is.

    Clinton has lost his fast ball. Not the speaker he once was.

    Maybe I misunderstood you in the GOP poll, but it sounded as though you watched Sanders speak. Which, if true contradicts your claim of not watching any of the DNC?! Please clear that up, thanks!

    I did not watch his speech but I have read the news reports about his supporters booing him for endorsing Clinton. Shows his lack of principles.

    Sorry, I can't vote in a poll like this until it's over - all depends on Hillary's speech tonight.

    So far, it's been what I'd call "chaotic" and of course I think the RNC one was better at this point but it was flawed, too - C+, B-.

    Michelle looked and sounded great, but she had to go say that the WH was "built by slaves" when that is a half-truth. Bill looked terrible but sounded strange at the beginning of his speech when he talked about how ugly he thought Hillary was when he first met her. He deserves it this time.

    And Sanders has managed to alienate at least forty percent of his supporters with his waffling on Hillary - he did endorse her but refused to place her name in nomination and then led a walkout. Kaine was okay, he is establishment as well but he can deliver Virginia's EVs, so there's that.
