Local Delegate: President Clinton is 'Truth-Teller-in-Chief'
Democratic National Convention concludes tonight with speeches from Wisconsin Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin and President Barack Obama.
The Democratic National Convention is “going great” with additional speakers revving up the crowd, according to Waukesha County Supervisor Larry Nelson, who previously was the Waukesha mayor.
“Last night, President (Bill) Clinton's speech was incredible,” Nelson said. “I have been referring to him as the truth-teller-in-chief. I thought he did a fantastic job with giving the facts on the issues.”
Nelson had a view of the large teleprompter that lead Clinton through his speech. But as a former English teacher, Nelson said it was “fascinating” to see Clinton ad-lib throughout the speech.
“Many of President Clinton’s best lines were not prepared,” Nelson said.
The convention continues tonight with speeches from Democrats like Wisconsin Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, who is running against former Gov. Tommy Thompson for U.S. Senate. The convention concludes with President Barack Obama’s acceptance speech.
