As for Obama's great speech to the Democratic National Convention on Thursday here are a few reviews:

I begin with Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks as they rarely hold back on their criticisms of politicians in general. But the review by is a thumbs up .

Pat Buchanan Loved Obama's Convention Speech
August 28, 2008
Staunch conservative Pat Buchanan had nothing but love for Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the 2008 Democratic national convention given before 85,000 people in Denver's Mile High Stadium

As Huffington Post writer Greg Mitchell notes that "Olbermann Rips AP Reporter's Analysis of Obama Speech":

In an unusually heated attack on a veteran political reporter by a cable news host, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann laced into the Associated Press's Charles Babington an hour after Barack Obama had concluded his speech in Denver on Thursday night.

With rare exception, nearly all of the top commentators and reporters on the three cable news networks had hailed Obama's speech as something new and powerful, and filled with specifics, and predicted it would have a positive effect on his chances vs. John McCain. This hallelujah chorus included conservatives such as Bill Kristol and Pat Buchanan and the longtime Republican David Gergen, as well as Tom Brokaw and Brian Williams. Buchanan called it the best and most important political convention speech he had ever heard, going back 48 years.

( To interject : One wonders if Babington wrote the article attacking Obama's speech for AP before hearing the speech or without really listening to the speech carefully? GORD.)

and Keith Olbermann Calls Out Associated Press as HACKS!

Cenk Uygur also gives an A for Hillary Clinton's Speech and praises her for getting behind Barack Obama.
