The Best Political Convention Speeches?
With the Republican National Convention underway, it led me to wonder: what are the best convention speeches in the televised age? To qualify, it seems, a speech would have rhetorical art and effectiveness and leave a lasting impression, even if one disagreed with the arguments and strategy employed.
Here are three I would nominate, each 20 years removed: Ronald Reagan (1964), Mario Cuomo (1984), Barack Obama (2004).
Any other strong nominees?
