Inside the Tent: Reactions to Obama’s big speech
Barack Obama‘s acceptance speech in Denver — although quickly overshadowed by John McCain‘s surprise vice president choice and the looming presence of Hurricane Gustav — drew heavy praise from the Democratic faithful last week. The most common response was a single word: “Awesome.”
The following video was made by Kelly Nuxoll of Huffington Post’s Off the Bus, a partner in the Reuters Inside the Tent project.
Inside the Tent has more than 40 delegates and other attendees in Denver and St. Paul, equipped with video cameras to capture the conventions from the ground up. Nuxol is not a Reuters employee and any opinions expressed are her own.
