Clint Eastwood, a long time hero of many, made a spectacle of himself last week when he spoke at the RNC – there are folks who would even go as far as question whether he believed that President Obama was actually in the chair, hence the possibility of the beginning stages of dementia.

With the exception of the Condoleezza Rice’s speech – everything else at the convention was simply old hat. No attempt was made on the part of any of the convention’s other speakers to be different – Clint’s pending dementia can easily be compared to the speeches of the others, the thing they share in common is that they all felt like they were written by the same writers who wrote My Mother The Car.

Last night, we seen politics at its best – for the first time in a long time, I was proud of what our country can produce in terms of spirit, hope and trying to keep the dream alive.

When Bill Clinton spoke, he spoke with vigor – the main concern in every word that came from his mouth was that we, the American public know the truth – both sides of it.
