ANN ALTHOUSE IS liveblogging the Invesco festivities.

UPDATE: So is Randy Neal.

ANOTHER UPDATE: And Stephen Green is drunkblogging.

MORE: Stephen Green: “Did Obama REALLY just accuse McCain of being unwilling to pursue bin Laden? I don’t like McCain. I don’t (yet) plan to vote for McCain. But I would NOT go around impugning John McCain’s manhood.”

STILL MORE: Don Surber parses.

I’d say not bad, but not as good as Bill Clinton’s speech last night.

TalkLeft: “The language did not soar. The rhetoric, tone and demeanor were down to Earth. I give this speech, in this place, at this time, an A+. ” Stephen Green is less enthusiastic.

Josh Marshall: “I think he’s doing a good job inoculating against next week’s attacks (and responding to the earlier ones) without appearing defensive or reactive.”

Jim Lindgren liked the text.

Megan McArdle: “I was disappointed by the speech. Your mileage may vary, of course. But it was basically standard Democratic Convention Boilerplate: nothing we haven’t seen before from Obama, or for that matter, every Democratic presidential candidate in living memory.”
