At the very last minute yesterday my brother called me and asked me if I wanted to go to the game with him and see the Astros play the Reds. I always like going to the game with my brother. He pays for the tickets and parking and I pay to feed and water us. It's always fun.

When we got to the game, I realized that I had wanted to see Hillary's speech at the National Convention and that I had forgotten to record it. I was really bummed out about it.

So, the first thing I did when I got home was turn on my tv so I could at least hear what the pundits had to say. And just as I turned on the tele, Hillary Clinton was approaching the podium in her orang pant suit to begin her speech. How serendipitous was that? I caught her speech. I cheered and clapped when she said "No way, No how, No McCain".

I was so inspired by her speech. I have grown so fond of her over this year and I can truly understand why her supporters have had so much difficulty letting go.

I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it.

She rocked. So did Bill tonight.

I missed Bill's Speech. :(

But I have to say, I'm so excited by this movement.

And I don't believe for one second that McCain and Obama are in a dead heat. I think this election is going to be a landslide.

It was heartbreaking (for me at least) to watch her during the nomination process and call for a unanimous vote. As Lou Grant told Mary Richards, "You've got spunk."
