Patch’s Poll: Who Has Had the Best Speech at the Democratic National Convention So Far?

Several speakers have taken to the stage to promote President Barack Obama for a second term, including his wife, Michelle Obama, and former President Bill Clinton.

It’s the second week of presidential politicking in the United States, as Americans now in Tampa, FL, last week to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, this week.

Like the Republican convention, dozens of national figures — congressmen, governors and some celebrities — have given emotional, and sometimes fiery, speeches on why President Barack Obama should be re-elected to another four years.

Among the group was .

But tonight is the main event, when Obama will assume the stage during the last night of the convention to accept his party’s nomination for a second term. And expect he'll have his own firey speech to the American people on why he's the better choice than his opponent, Republican Mitt Romney.

So, without further adieu, we’d like to find out from our Patch readers which official has given the best speech so far. Which of the list below stole the show? Take our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.

Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Sen. John Kerry were both barn burners. Watch online if you want to see how passionate Democrats are about employment and foreign policy.

Pro, Even though you got a tax cut? Even though the banks are being curbed? Even though the wars on US "credit cards" are being safely ended? Even though the employment grows every month? Even though schools are healing themselves? How is all that middle class support "picking your pocket"?

Honora, your joking right? Unless your a criminal, government employee or living off the system it's coming out of your pocket.

Haha. Oops. Mayor of Massachusetts. Something about those two 'm's made me want to put them together. Thank you, Mr. Hayes. You are, indeed, correct Deval Patrick is Governor of Massachusetts. Did you see his speech? Even if you disagree with his political beliefs, there is no denying he is an exceptional orator, no?

As a professed Libertarian I try to avoid politics at all cost, especially on television.
