I didn't watch the speech. Did his lip quiver when he talked about the American people? Did he say that our best days are ahead of us? Did he say that poor working Americans should be outraged (without cracking up)?
Grow up. Kennedy is dead. Reagan is almost dead. You've got Carter and his ilk. If you buy the words and ignore his actions you deserve him.
btw. I'll vote for a good democrat any day. What pisses me off is the choice of voting for a bad republican or a worse democrat.
