A (Ladies’) Night At Democratic National Convention

So first – there were plenty of great speeches, we’re told, that came from non-female orators, and that’s great. Slate has posted the full video [1] of four speeches if, like me, you missed them or most of them, including San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (read the swooning [2] over his speech – nice job!), Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and FLOTUS, of course. I only caught the last 10-15 minutes of Michelle Obama’s speech and from what I’m hearing, I did well to do that because it started out slow, some are saying.
