The confetti has fallen, the "world's biggest celebrity" has spoken, and the McCain campaign has issued its grumpy retort to the nation. Now it's time to look back and reflect on the Studs and Duds of the Democratic National Convention.
Hillary Clinton: Her endorsement of Obama was so rousing and sincere that it even convinced Bill.
John Kerry: Swiftboated and left for dead four years ago, Kerry struck back with what the New York Times' Michael Cohen is calling "possibly the best non-acceptance speech at a Democratic convention since Mario Cuomo and Jesse Jackson."
Brian Schweitzer: The Montana governor lassoed the crowd with his bolo tie and never let it go. We haven't heard the last of him.
Those Adorable Obama Girls: Their sprightly cameo following their mother's speech ought to be worth at least a walk-on in the next Jonas Brothers movie.
Mark Warner: His keynote address reassured uneasy voters that even after the coming Change, politicians will still be boring.
