10:33 PM: I’m not sure I’m remembering this right. But I don’t remember convention speeches being done like this before, with the walk through, looks more intended to mimic a SOTU.
10:50 PM: This doesn’t strike me as a good speech. It seems disjointed to me, not really building in a clear direction. The protestor(s?)(still trying to get a good read on what happened there) sort of threw off the cadence at the outset. It just doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere.
11:04 PM: I don’t think the thematic part of the speech, the first twenty-plus minutes, worked. But starting to pick up now, warming to themes, gaining direction.
