Clinton failed to connect even with his fans in the hall, but no problem for Obama - America was watching football

I need to give a more detailed review of Bill Clinton.

He gave a terrible speech. It was confused, confusing, wonkish and silly.

I follow this stuff, and I had trouble following him.

The crowd had trouble knowing when to cheer. It was hard to understand how his arguments led to endorsing Obama. He stepped on his own applause.

He wasn't funny. He wasn't engaging. He even lost, for extended stretches, the crowd in the hall that was predisposed to love him. He was rambling, confused and silly.

Fortunately for Obama, America was watching football. But I wish they'd been watching Clinton.
