Media Alert! Coming up CNN: Bill Clinton Speech in CA for Davis! 1:30!est!
CNN's Blitzer to feature Clinton's Speech at African American Church! Should be good. He's there with Grey Davis!

16. Yes, they gave him all of 5 minutes or so
Even in that time I was mesmerized. God, the contrast with Bush is beyond words. Yesterday, I was talking to my father, and he told me he heard Bush's radio address. He said he stumbled horribly, and he was reading a damn script!

17. yep... exactly what he did.


cut away to let Bill Simon spin it, and then moved on to covering how great things are going in Iraq.

4. Clinton still has extreme presence
When i see Bush Sr on TV, it just looks like some frumpy man, but Clinton still handles himself like a leader.

12. It's on!
And it is nice to listen to. Clinton is very entertaining. He told a few stores and used hand gestures and all the stuff they teach you to do in a college level speech class.

It is a nice change of pace from the Bush "Deer in the headlights" look.

20. Welcome to DU, Cloud!
Check out aWol's head and shoulders gestures over the last year of public speaking. He's refined it to the "Deer Butting the Headlights" look. Fitting, the poor fool.

18. Flipping channels Faux had live clips of the speech, with Susan Estrich &
a Repug hack commenting. It looks like CNN and FAUX had live feeds, but Clinton took too long thanking everyone so they had to cut the segments.

They must have thought it would be a big speech to slot the time and have live feed....but it just didn't work out.

19. CNN drives me nuts doing this
Live! Bill Clinton...intro, cut away, well that's it folks
Now here's more important shit like Candy Crowley telling why
Bush is wonderful for the 432nd time, and back to the air head
on CNNI playing a news story from two days ago.

I don't know why I even own a tv, they drive me up a wall.
