I thought it was okay, but rather weak as a keynote speech. All of the lines about how we can win the race to the future, as well as his delivery, had a sort of Tony Robbins self help feel. It was definitely a moderate speech — and it’s refreshing to hear a Democrat who doesn’t demonstrate a visceral hatred of business. The only lines that drew big applause were generic ones such as, “That’s why we must elect Barack Obama as our next president.” But he didn’t do much to convince people why we must.
