The Democrats' Convention is always entertaining, much more so than the Republicans' gathering. Of course Obama can't possibly deliver even a small percentage of what he promises. Anyone who thinks he can is living in lala land. Nevertheless it is fun to listen to the hopefulness that has been lacking in the US for the last 8 years.

I'm sick of the nastiness of politics. I've been turning off the sound and sometimes the TV when political ads and news are on. I've saved quite a bit of electricity lately.

I had the same thought last night--that it was good to hear the hopefulness. I'd rather he had high ideal goals that he can't attain than more pragmatic selfishness.
