I had many problems with the convention in general (not even counting what it did to Boston!) The musical performers, the Vietnam comrade buddies, the balloons and confetti, and the overall fanfare seemed unprofessional to me, however I can't imagine the Republicans will be any different.
But enough about that and on to Kerry's speech.
I wasn't impressed at first, but as his speech went on I was really surprised by how good he was at public speaking! He seemed very sincere and overall I was quite impressed.
I like how he quoted people and referenced history from the distant past.
There were three things he said that I really liked.
I love how he said that those against the war were not unpatriotic but were in fact the heart of what makes Democracy great.
I really enjoyed his comment on how he was not going to claim that God was on his side, and then referenced Lincoln and said how he humbly hopes that we are in His side.
And lastly, I enjoyed his reference of America's inventive past conjuring up the Wright brothers, the Moon mission, and ended by saying how he supports Science and hopes that stem cell research can cure many of our health woes.
