America’s Happy Warrior

Ok. I know I slated BBC for its excess election coverage but despite not wanting to I did eventually get sucked into the election coverage.

The Americans just do it so much better than we do. A whooping cheering, back slapping, high five-ing acceptance speech at a convention center in Chicago is somewhat different from a speech in a Tamworth Methodist Church Hall.

As expected President Obama’s acceptance speech was an oratory masterpiece, but the high point for me was the introduction of America’s Happy Warrior – Vice President Joe Biden.  If there are after-election parties and there’s one with Joe Biden and Bill Clinton, that’s where I want to be at!
