65. Welcome to DU, manicraven!

Booing and catcalls! I thought I was imagining it at first. But by Jove there were people booing and catcalling!

Hillary, on the other hand, had some genuinely funny moments and then some rather impressive, even soaring oratory. Hers isn't loud, either. It's with a soft voice. Describing what we can be and who we can be. Appealing to everybody's better angels. That's what she seems to be doing. Taking Michelle Obama's "when they go low, we go high" and putting it to work. So glad she went last. Helps everyone kinda forget how jerky Trump was. She was elegant, dignified, warm, human, and very much the adult in the room. She aimed a few stingers at him, but started by poking fun at herself, and ended with a MAGNIFICENT commentary that sought to inspire and uplift, and emphasize what we are when we're at our best. She very astutely wove it into the whole idea behind the Al Smith Dinner philosophy and philanthropic efforts - how that shows us going high, rather than low.

I thought it was terrific! I thought SHE was terrific. So polished, professional, compassionate, and thoroughly presidential.
