A number of speakers at the Democratic convention last night delivered some first rate oratory. A good speech combines information while stirring the imagination. It is persuasive and precise.

With a record and a vision like that, I will not stand by and let him be bullied out of office—and neither should you, and neither should you and neither should you.
