It was historic for 2 reasons:

1. First women of a major political party nominated for President
2. "LIAR", "NO TPP", "#WIKILEAKS signs + protesters from her own party chanting against her

It was hilarious seeing the excitement over a statement as simple as "I believe in science." I'm curious what those on the left who were cheering interpreted that to mean. There are plenty of mathematical and scientific facts which she won't support, especially in the interest of pandering to particular interest groups.

She explained what it meant. That Global Warming is real and those that deny it don't believe science. Did that hurt your feelings?

Wow?!?!?! over the top much?? easy killer i cant even take that seriously.

it was a "good" speech IMO, it will be historic after she wins because she will be the first woman president but on its own, it wasnt anything spectacular. It was GREAT . . for "HER" but I think Michelle's, Bookers and Obamas were all better "speeches" but they aren't running for president so thier historic impact is of course different.

It would have been a lot better if she had any credibility.

But why deny it?

There is plenty of reason to not act.

1) You prefer disaster scenario.
2) You believe science or sorcery will change these trends some how and all the fossil fuel we can burn and animal agriculture to boot will only matter a little bit.

Didn't you hear any of the other speeches?

Credible? You can count on her to lie. Didn't you hear her say that they had families of slain officers when they hadn't. It's just something you can learn about politicians, they like to speak in the negative.

Her whole speech was splendid, she finally told the Truth but she didn't address what happened at Benghazi.

Here's one for her. Donald Trump has got a roulette wheel in his head and some time after the election it stops on a personality, that we get.

GW is hogwash and it's all about Power..........and Control!

Who in their right mind would want to hear anything she says?

No kidding. Young whipper snappers are alike that ...Utopians all. :lamo

After listening to Hillary's speech I'm tempted to line up all the recent speeches given at the R and D conventions in recent decades and contrast and compare - see just how many times the same exact **** is said by all the candidates across the board.

As always: unoriginal, dull, and full of the usual hoopla you expect to find in any presidential-candidate speech.

You have to have more than a vagina and a set of tits to sway me, I guess.

Absolutely agree. It was a "good" speech, but nowhere close to great, especially when you compare it to either of the Obama speeches.

Don't you think "I believe in science." is a pretty big blanket statement when all you're referring to is global warming? :roll:
