Massachusetts has been extraordinarily well-represented in this year’s convention, don’t you think? A prime-time speech by Governor Deval Patrick in which he drew on his own remarkable life story in making the case for Barack Obama as the man to open up the American dream to all Americans. John Kerry’s just-finished speech aggressively taking on John McCain’s “expertise” on foreign policy, and powerfully boosting Barack Obama’s candidacy. And, of course, Senator Ted Kennedy’s incredibly moving appearance, delivered in the midst of his struggle with brain cancer, in which he summed up the Democratic party’s ideals.
Have to say, I’m proud to be a Democrat from Massachusetts today!
