RT @CharlesMBlow: Soft-spoken Harry Reid delivers the most negative, attack-filled speech so far. Will that tone work? #DNC2012
RT @CharlesMBlow: Reid going after Romney's tax returns... "We can only imagine what secrets would be revealed it he showed a dozen year ...
Drenched. Wow. Not easy getting to the arena - lots of walking to get into security perimeter #DNC2012
A roaring welcome for Tammy Duckworth - a U.S. war veteran running for Congress from Illinois. #DNC2012
Connection problems may make DNC tweeting sparse tonight, though you're probably (righly) watching what's happening in Quebec anyway.
Quick summary: Cheap anti-Romney speech by former Ohio gov, flat speech by Rahm Emmanuel, fun but tonally inconsistent speech by Kal Penn.
So, yeah, the bar isn't super-high so far.
Lily Leadbetter's speech is the first really compelling one I've see so far tonight. Lots of women around me vocally agreeing.
They should've given Leadbetter a slot in their big hour.
Tammy Duckworth, former Ohio Gov. Strickland and Lilly Ledbetter - crowd pleasers. Really pushing buttons #DNC2012
No punches pulled tonight by speakers. Hitting #Romney now: Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick.
Deval Patrick: "It's time for Democrats to grow a backbone and stand up for what we believe in." Didn't expect that line.
Patrick's speech seems to be suggesting that Democrats should stop being such wusses and rally around their President.
Gov. Patrick at #DNC2012: Massachusetts was 47 out of 50 in creating jobs. We've heard that line before during #GOP race via @RickSantorum
