Watch C-Span sure, but most Americans will not be

If you weren't one of the lucky few watching C-Span, you missed a brilliant speech by Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer. I was watching MSNBC, so I only saw Schewitzer's hand motions and Bill Clinton's reactions. But you could sense the energy in the room. I watched it on Youtube... and he was clearly playing to the crowd.... and boy did he ever.

But if you missed it, don't be upset. Personally, I believe that in order to best judge what is going to happen in terms of post-convention bounce, you must watch what most Americans watched (then don't watch MSNBC, someone with a sense of humour might say). Most Americans don't watch C-SPAN (even I do). No matter how good Schweitzer might have been, most Americans are talking about Clinton... or maybe Warner's lackluster performance.

In either case, Youtube allows you to watch the speech and see a potential '12 (if Obama loses) or '16 candidate, while watching MSM (mainstream media) allows you to see the convention through the eyes' of the public.
