Big Night for Hillary and CNN
August 27, 2008 11:13 AM
Wearing a bright orange pantsuit, Sen. Hillary Clinton delivered a riveting unity speech in Denver last night. I viewed it on CNN, and the cable net did a fabulous job with its camera work.
Cameras flitted from the charged-up speaker to Bill Clinton, sitting tight-lipped in the VIP section, looking like he was on the verge of tears. Female delegates went wild when Hillary thanked her “sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits.”
But the best was CNN’s deft camera play on Michelle Obama, who was warily watching Hillary on stage. Only once did Michelle crack a smile, and that was when Hillary said, “Wasn’t Michelle Obama terrific last night?”
No love lost there, I’d say. So tonight it’s Bill’s turn. Will he behave himself?
