Now that is a motherfucking ORATOR.
I think his strong point is actually that he wasn't acting like a professional orator.
His whole speech he kept shutting down applause and not building cadences right, ad-libbing his lines and shifting topics, because he was just a smart guy explaining things he wanted us to understand. Things he really cared about, and wanted us to know. And that sincerity came through in spades.

I loved every minute of this. Gives me a bit of hope seeing people actually speaking to the heart of the issues and not just talking points to get their voter-base riled up and angry.
Such a great power point presentation. And by power point, I mean President Clin-Ton!

I, for one, am totally for more Medicare spending for the disabled.
Is that on the Dems' platform, or has it been gaveled out?

Bill Clinton was a great president and is an exemplary statesman and orator, but he's a shitty human being. I'd want him on my side if I was accused of a capital crime or wanted to raise some money, but would never leave him alone in a room with my wife or daughter, if I had either.
All that said, this is a brilliant speech.
He did some shit stuff as president, too. A whole lot of the corporate deregulation that led to the mess we're in now happened under Clinton.
Goldman Sachs donated to Democrats, Merrill Lynch donated to Republicans. Create a playing field that can be gamed, whether financial engineering or party patronage, and it will be gamed.
Ultimately, humans in 2100 won't give a damn whether US Medicare went bankrupt in 2020 or 2030. They'll care about the atmospheric carbon that they're stuck with for the next 100 millenium. I'm not sure there's really a lesser of evils on that one.

He didn't answer MY question: What is the capital of Israel?

Good speech and I'm glad the speech was not lots of platitudes but actually discussing the meat and potatoes of political issues, but I don't think many people will care, sadly.

I like this Bill Clifton fellow, is he perhaps available for the job of president?

As a BLOODMOUTH I hate to admit it, but going vegan did wonders for his health.

Am I the only person that wishes the crowd just wasn't there?
