Savidge for America made it into Mile-High Stadium tonight, and got to watch as Barack Obama accepted his party’s nomination. However, the combination of ridiculous amounts of walking (apparently, INVESCO Field is approximately 7,000 miles from anything) and lack of sleep for the past few days (although my average of five hours pales in comparison to the all-nighters some of our producers have endured) mean that I am at risk of falling on this laptop asleep any second now. So some quick analysis of the Obama speech: while it didn’t have the oratory flash of earlier Obama addresses like the one he gave in New Hampshire (which saw the birth of “Yes We Can” as the campaign slogan), it did something much more important by showing what he means. There has been some frustration with Democrats who didn’t know what “Change” means, even though it would be thrown out all the time – Obama made a good decision by saying, “Change means…” many times in the speech.
It’s been a great experience here in Denver, I should be back for a wrap-up tomorrow, but I’ll be moving into college (go badgers) so it might be a little late.
