Democratic Convention Day One Wrap-Up!

Well, that was quite a night!

Although the day got off to a rocky start, and stayed fairly bumpy throughout the evening, there were a number of terrific speeches last night, not least of which was First Lady Michelle Obama's. Woo! FLOTUS BROUGHT IT.

[Transcript here.]

I again did some live-tweeting of the primetime speakers, and I've Storified those tweets for anyone who wants to read them.

And here is some of the coverage from BNR:

Me: Grab the Tissues: Karla Ortiz Is Why We're Democrats.

Peter: Karla Ortiz and Anastasia Somoza Make Me Proud to Be a Hillary Democrat.

Peter: Wow! Astonishing Michelle Obama Endorsement of Hillary.

Ginger: Michelle Obama Was My Harvard Law Classmate and Her Convention Speech Floored Me.

Me: Bernie Slams Trump's Twitter Trolling.

What did you think? Whose speeches did you love? It's so amazing when your party nominates someone people love and thus have an embarrassment of riches in terms of speakers, as opposed to nominating a radioactive dirtbag!
