The proceedings in the arena last night were very exciting for a political person like me. Seeing people like Julian Castro, Mayor of San Antonio, for example is equvilant to the average person seeing a news celebrity, and the arena was filled with others who felt the same. These people are the rock stars in the political world. There was a growing excitement in the place as the evening wore on.
When Michelle Obama came on the stage and spoke the place erupted despite the fact that the delegates and guests had been sitting there for more than 5 hours. Her speech was one of hope and inspiration for this campaign. People left feeling tired, but fired up and wanting more.
This morning I am a little bleary eyed due to the lack of sleep, and my throat a little raw from the shouting. The excitement is building daily as we get closer to the President's speech on Thursday. There are some wonderful speakers on the agenda for tonight, and I look forward to hearing them.
