Bill Clinton's rousing DNC speech
The highlight of the Democratic National Convention ended up coming not from Obama but from former President Clinton. In a keynote address that ran far over schedule and late into the night, Clinton delivered a common-sense, point-by-point repudiation of Republican ideology and offered a defense of the Obama administration's sometimes rocky first term. "No president, no president -- not me or any of my predecessors, no one -- could have repaired all the damage he found in just four years," Clinton said. "But he has laid the foundation for a new, modern, successful economy."
