7. This DNC convention wasn't about getting a poll bump. It was about getting the Dem base

enthusiastic for the work ahead to win in November.

When Sen. John Kerry makes you laugh at Rmoney et al instead of putting you to sleep, you know that the real goal of this convention was to fire up the Dem base. I've never been a John Kerry fan, but tonight he gave the best speech of his life. Congrats to him and to whoever was the speech coach or coaches for the Dems this year. Some like Bill Clinton are natural speakers, but when those like John Kerry, who has a reputation for curing insomnia, give enthusiastic speeches, you get a clue that the Dems, especially our Dem leaders, have put aside their egos and differences and have embraced working as a TEAM this year.
