MOLLIE HEMINGWAY: President Obama originally was going to give a speech last and he asked to go before Kamala Harris so that he wouldn't overshadow here, but the strength of his speech, I guess did in any case.
There is another issue which is enthusiasm is not high for the Democratic ticket. I know people in the media think focusing on Bad Orange Man is the way to cultivate voters. A big missed story is the lack of enthusiasm, the Biden/Harris ticket has less enthusiasm than either of the previous two losing candidates, Romney and Hillaty Clinton.
I think the convention missed an opportunity to reach out to those moderate voters. That's what having everyone in newsrooms having the same perspective causes you to miss in the analysis. They don't see what is good or bad about the Democratic convention from the eyes of the average American who doesn't go to sleep at night seething with hatred for Donald Trump like they do.
