    The reason I am watching the convention on cspan.

      I agree totally with this. What is Rachel’s problem? I just happen to turn over to MSNBC after the convention was over and lo and behold, she and her buddy Wallace were trying to criticize Bill for talking about when he first met Hillary, saying it was risky. For once I agree with what Chuck Todd said about it.

      • July 27, 2016 at 1:30 am

        I understand why Rachel said it, in that it will make Trump bring up Bill’s past (even though he’s far worse, except he, nor any of his supporters give a fuck.)

        It’s just that Rachel hasn’t been around The Big Dog for a while. She’s forgotten Dog is five steps ahead of everyone in the room (other than Barack & Michelle. And me. shut up.)

        It’s bait. Bill’s a supergenius, only smarter than Wile E.

        Trump will take it, because he can’t help it, and it will backfire and keep the dumpster alight. Some of the smarter sheep may wake up to the gravity-altering hypocrisy crawling up their ass, and eating their souls…

      The reason I watched on the dems youtube

    i’ve been going against the clintons since they entered the national stage, yet voting for them always when forced to, but i was very impressed with bill’s speech tonight. so amazingly coordinated with michelle’s and warren’s last night (the perfect 1-2 punch) that it looked as if he rarely looked at a telepromter and gave his speech from the heart, and that was very impressive. to my dismay, watching the the p.b.s feed, gwen ifill’s only contribution to the immediate commentary was to throw shade on bill for not mentioning monica lewinsky. honest to god. seriously, WTF?!?! go find it if you don’t believe me. gwen ifill is literally dead to me now after tonight. and to think it’s because i’m defensive of the clintons. that’s how far we’ve gone into crazy land in regards to the media. even p.b.s.

      did gwen show the same concern for deadbeat donnie’s ex-wives and extramarital girlfriends last week?

        no. and we watched p.b.s. for most of it. so disturbing. we might have to sign up for dish/cable just to get c-span.

      Gwen Ifill expected Bill to talk about Monica Lewinsky? At the convention?!?!?

      No such standard for Trump though: cheating & abandoning wife after wife, barely present for his children.

      So sick of the alleged “liberal” media.

      didn’t feel long to me at all, and i’m no fan of the clintons. i thought bill’s speech was masterful and a perfect complement to the genius of michelle obamas and warrens from last night. this has been an expertly-run convention so far. you’d never know it though watching p.b.s. both sides are equally lame, don’t you know? that republican freakshow from last week is equal to the democratic convention so far. just ask gwen ifill.

        This convention was run by competent professionals. I’m really proud of how well it’s being conducted.

        Haven’t been watching PBS – to be honest, it rarely crosses my mind to go there for TV news. I don’t even listen to NPR in my car as much as I used to bcz of the right slant that’s snuck in there. Sigh!

      They are using Trumps own words to highlight him in a negative way. Those Trump shorts are very powerful.

    What a night! As a 62 year old woman, never thought we would see this day. I’m not sure there is another woman out there who would have put up with the 25 years of shit Hillary has endured.

    AND the glass shattering was WAY better than DT’s fog entrance:-)

    Hope the Sanders people stay out tomorrow night as well. I will be furious if they try booing PBO or VP Joe.

    Nerdy, you have done an absolutely remarkable job with all the coverage, and you’re doing it all on your own. THANK YOU!

      Yes, he was. He trying too hard to be *objective* and it seems like him and Van Jones are the token Ds that are getting air time …..drove me nuts! I don’t know what his angle is, but just go in for the kill like the GOP stooges do with no shame or truth!!!

      And Trump tweeted that the republicans had “a much more beautiful set”.

      This is a Presidential election – Trump has to be into the final stages of dementia.
