Clinton Speaks...And Speaks...And Speaks

I'd like to say I saw the entirety of Clinton's speech last night because, whatever your politics, there's no denying Clinton is a great speaker. He had some pretty convincing lines in the first part about working together, and he brought that "Don't Stop Thinkin' About Tomorrow" vibe to the place.

But then he spiraled into blaming Bush for the economy Obama created. And by the fourth or fifth subject change, I had completely lost interest. Good speech from a good speaker--if only it had been half as long!

Listener fatigue can suck the energy from the best of speeches.

I'm guessing anyone who was not a devoted Democrat felt the same way last night. If you have six hours to spare, here's the transcript and video.
