For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Denver looks like the Clinton Convention!
Rarely in the history of American political conventions has the losing side received so much time and attention as this week in Denver. Barack Obama has been forced, by the clout Hillary Rodham Clinton showed in their primary battle and his need for her voters in his race against Republican John McCain, to allow the gathering of Democrats to look a lot like the Clinton Convention.
Could this backfire on Obama? Might he end up looking tremendously unpresidential and inexperienced tonight by comparison to the Clintons who gave great speeches the previous evenings? Has the bar been raised too high for him to even come close to the lofty expectations that have been set?
