Convention things and trends you have noticed so far *thread*

One big thing I have noticed so far is that the speakers and videos talk about the candidate MORE and the opposition candidate in smaller amounts. Compare this to the Republican Convention in which they spent most of the time harping on Obama and very little time talking up their candidate and less time talking about their own policies.
This may change as the week goes on but I doubt it's gonna be a "Romney bash" event.

What things have you, fellow DUers, have noticed?

2. Happier faces of ALL colors.

That is always the thing that makes me feel happiest about the Democrats. Blacks, Whites, Asians, Arabs, Latinos.... I see Muslim women....I see America.
