Kerry on fire

I’ve never seen him that impassioned on his own behalf. And if Bill Clinton was more intent on whacking Bush than McCain, Kerry made up for it. He even poked fun at himself as he ran through a litany of McCain flip-flops.

Good Jason Zengerle piece in The New Republic on Kerry’s revival as one of Obama’s most effective surrogates. If Biden falls flat tonight, remember: I told you so.

    Yeah, I thought Kerry was good, too. The one thing I think all the speakers have to do is connect Obama to mainstream America. That’s the biggest hurdle. Too many people don’t really know who he is or don’t quite think that he’s “one of us.”
