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  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  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.
