DENVER (CNN) - Not a lot of music so far in this keynote speech. Warner was not asked to be an attack dog. He was asked to address the theme of common ground (former Democratic governor, Republican state). But compare this speech with another keynote speech with the same message: Barack Obama, 2004. That was stirring. This is competent, but rather flat.
Watch: 'McCain more of the same,' Warner says
I have to agree, his speech was kind of flat. It was not particularly stirring, it was just adequate.
Bill – I disagree with you. Why are you comparing two different speeches from two different people. Why doesn't CNN talk about the DIVERSITY that is represented at the DNC convention? Do you think you'll see the same type of DIVERSITY at the RNC convention next week?
Mark Warner is the man in Virginia! God Bless him...
vic in Nashville,
We don't need your antics here, there is plenty space on republican blogs, and I think they need you there
Vic in Nashville.
Stop your antics here, I am sure the GOP blogs need you more, there is plenty of divisive messages there, and am sure they need you there...
As for Schneider, it's time to get behind Obama buddy, you will be left hanging in the balance with your nonsense
I beg to differ. I thought Warner's speech was inspiring and put a tremendous emphasis on hope for our future. For a Senator from a strongly Repub state, I felt he was strong in his support of Obama, direct in his opinion of a failed Bush administration, and emphatically anti-McCain.
He is a gentleman and a scholar. Obama was smart to pick him to speak at the convention.
Not everyone can produce an exciting speech, but doesn't mean it don't have substance to it. Let the American people decide and although it's more of an opinion on your point, you need to address it as so.
David Gergen got it right.
Warner's speech had ideas.
I heard others on MSNBC and CNN criticizing the speech for not attacking, speculating that it may have gone over the heads of the listeners across the nation.
Not so for this viewer.
I like Warners approach to science, to business, to future orientation, to seeing the changing world as an opportunity instead of a doom.
Nope I would like to have more speeches with those ideas pitched for the American public.
We really do need a president that takes science and research seriously.
And to the commentators: There are a lot of us who really do get into ideas more than polls and considered weighing of issues more than celebrity ratings.
What a lousy speech and where was the attack dog? Give me a break!
I agree. Underwhelming.
i think the left nut has it right
anway, tongith she made it about McCAin and herself and how she and booba just divided the democrats further and deeper
these two clowns do great........
since she is the center and her PUMAS are doing our work
let her do it
she is good at it
remember her words it is personal
we love it... she is divisive, we dont like her
but hey she is doing our job easier
McCain 08 and 12
see her in our adds
she has not say I dont approve of the messages
she has sat quietly and nicely
great job hillary
we will send you a thank you note
no gas cards thou
Did we listen to the same speech?
His speech was boring not electrifying enough. Is this a keynote address for the democratic convention –very poor indeed..
Newsflash: It IS NOT HILLARY CLINTON'S JOB TO MAKE SURE OBMAMA IS ELECTED!!!!!
You left wing nut jobs are out of control. Obama has always blamed someone else when something didn't quite go his way. It's always this or that. He never takes a look at himself. He never takes responsibility.
The fact is, If he loses, he loses because of himself, his inexperience, his lack of accomplishment while in the Senate, his dubious relationships, his ego, arrogance, his lack of letting the public know his plans, on the economy, healthcare, security, social security, education, illegal immigrants, high price of gasoline, environment, global warming, etc., etc., etc., Hillary doesn't have to make sure he's elected. That's Obama's job.
HE'S AWESOME !!! I COULD SEE HIM AS PRESIDENT SOMEDAY
WHAT A LAME SPEECH. GO HOME WARNER.
There is only one Barack Obama and Only one Warner. So I think the speech was excellent. But we can't measure someone else with a yard stick of another. It's going to be hard to have a black or white man who can speak exactly like Obama. He is mixed
Yes it was very FLAT!
I usually like you the best of the lot besides Jack and Donna but you
guys have no right to even comment on this convention! Are you even watching it? This has been cnn's most self absorbed moment yet!!!
I switched to c-span last night because I wanted to hear the speakers
not you people at your own private narcissistic party!! I would continue to flip back with EVERY speaker and nope still you guys having your own private party. You have done this country a great disservice
with your coverage of this convention and if Wolf is the Chief organizer then it is time for him to go. Well I suppose this will get "moderated"
and never make it to public view but it was certainly worth trying.
It is a sin the way all these people are lying.
And Bill WHO are you?
Warner's speech was good. I liked the line about having people in office who actually believe in science.
But he wasn't as good as Obama in 2004. Duvall Patrick and Schweitzer both had better speeches in my opinion.
Republicans dont love America,,,,,,only money.
