DNC my POV 3rd Night

Party Unity. I turned on the TV last night just as former President Bill Clinton was about to speak. Bill said Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is ``ready to lead'' and vowed to do everything he could to make sure Obama wins the White House in November. Clinton's speech was one of the most closely watched at the Democratic National Convention. I tuned off the TV.

CBS News this morning mentioned Obama's stadium speech. They said something like "don't expect a speech of 'I have a dream' caliber." They said Obama would use the event to bash McCain. If I were Obama's camp, I'd do the former: deliver a powerhouse speech that would seal and solidify. We'll see...

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
