Some thoughts on Mayor Castro’s speech, right before I make my way to Charlotte myself. I was somewhat disappointed by his keynote, as it lacked the electric zeal of both Obama’s ’04 speech and his June speech at the State Convention. I guess it wouldn’t be appropriate for him to directly call out Perry in North Carolina.
Of course, I did really like the other Castro’s speech, Joaquin Castro that is. I feel like most people underestimated his brief time in front of the camera. For what it is worth, I think he will make a damn fine Congressman. And, please, don’t misconstrue what I said to mean I did not like Mayor Castro’s speech, I did. It was just not another Obama, as I had been expecting it.
