Some of the best lines heard at the Democratic National Convention:
· “One thing you can say of George Bush; Mr. President, we will always be in your debt.”--Raum Emmanuel (D-IL), 8/26
· “If [McCain’s] the answer, the question must be ridiculous”--New York Governor David Patterson, 8/26/08
· “Republicans talk about putting ‘country first,’ but tell that to Marion, Indiana. They sent my job overseas. America can’t afford more of the same. We need a president who puts the Barney Smiths before the Smith Barneys.”--Barney Smith, a once-proud Republican whose lost his job at the RCA factory in Marion, Indiana after 31 years, when his job was shipped overseas, 8/28/08
The best line not heard at the convention:
· “[The Republicans are] asking for another four years -- in a just world, they’d get 10 to 20.”--Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), left out of his prepared speech at the request of the Obama Campaign. If we had more people like Kucinich in Washington, we wouldn’t be wondering how to get out of Iraq. We wouldn’t be there.
