Lots of good speeches last night (as there were last Tuesday during the RNC) on the opening night of the Democratic National Convention. Tammy Duckworth, Ted Strickland, Deval Patrick, Julian Castro. And then Michelle Obama–wow!
Imagine Julian Castro someday running for president against Marco Rubio–that would be interesting.
The best line–for ME–came during Ted Strickland’s speech much earlier. In a clever misuse of Scripture, he quoted Matthew 6:21, “For where you treasure is, there will your heart be also,” and then pointed out that Mitt Romney’s treasure was in the Caymans and Switzerland. Unfortunately, this biblical allusion undoubtedly went right over the heads of most of the press and the delegates. “Matthew? Who is Matthew?”
