Convention Dispatch: “I want you to listen”

Posted by Jon Winet | Sep 6, 2012 | Community/News

“We are here to nominate a president. And I’ve got one in mind.” William Jefferson Clinton, 40th president of the United States captivated the party faithful in the Convention Hall with a rousing speech on the second night of the conventions. “You all are having fun, but this is serious. I want you to listen.” His forty-five plus minute-long nomination speech was both folksy and focused, written and delivered in the manner of a Southern revivalist preacher.

The former president layed out a case for as an Obama Administration second term in the White House, and took on, point by point, criticisms by the Romney-Ryan campaign of the Obama record.
