I think that Hillary's speech was just MEH

Ahhhh-MEH-zing THAT IS!!!! (Ok that was lame I admit it)

That woman, that goddess displayed the entire arsenal that makes her the most qualified person in history as far as I'm concerned to run for the Presidency of the United States. She laid out her intelligence, policy mind, showed the personal side, gave specifics, and threw some delicious shade at that orange bumpkin Donald Trump. I'm so proud of her. She was FANTASTIC!!! Onward to the WHITE HOUSE BABY!!!!! CLINTON PART 2: BIGGER AND BETTER!!!!!

She was outstanding - the best she's ever done, imo.

4. What does throwing shade mean?

 

The media, especially Microsoft NBC, keeps using that term, but they refuse to explain what it means. Why refuse to explain it? What is their agenda?

18. To subtly cast aspersions on something...

Generally with class, grace, and bit of tongue in cheek.

20. Why not just say that?

 

I feel like the mass media is losing a lot of people because they decide to try to be hip and use modern slang rather than just speaking plainly.

5. I'm just glad a transformer didn't blow. Or something else.

 

Call me "concerned", but I just wanted things to go smooth.

14. She put donald in his place

 

I am always nervous for Sec. Clinton at these moments because she doesn't have the easy style of Bill or Barack. She did what she needed to do tonight and she had more than a few moments where she really connected. I loved the most the fact she slipped the dagger between trumps ribcage with those well timed and cutting remarks. You know he is seething because what she said was true.

15. I'm not a fan of Rah Rah speeches. This is not her best playing field

 

I think she did OK. Conventions are limited n their impact. They are mostly for party insiders and lobbyists.

I think she did what she needed to do.

The debates will be a much better opportunity for her -- if Trump will even show up.

21. David Brooks said it was 'weak', but I don't agree.

 

That's the best I've ever seen Hillary, easily. She was ready for this moment.

Brooks also mouthed some garbage about her speaking in a "steady drone", but I think maybe he wrote that talking point earlier, because tonight it was not true. She varied her voice levels, and "went quiet" for a few particular points, which causes the crowd to quiet down and LISTEN-- much more variety than before. It's possible there's been some voice coaching as some of us had recommended in the past.

Hope I don't get flamed for this, I've never criticized her dress-- but I really liked her in the white tonight-- no weird colors to distract from what she was going to say. It also suggested she was the "white knight" coming to save us from the Dark-Lord Donald TRUMP, and his midnight-in-America henchmen!

All in all, she was better than I expected-- both in content and in delivery.

She did a pretty good job of taking down Donald Trump, but I need to go listen to that part again, I had some distractions here...
