CLELAND CURIOSITY....I agree with Michael Crowley -- when I first heard that former Georgia Senator Max Cleland was going to introduce John Kerry on this last night of the convention, I didn't think it was such a good idea. The man's incredible personal sacrifice and public service aside, he's not a terribly good speaker. He is by nature quite shy, and while I'm certainly not one to knock that, it doesn't necessarily make for good political communication skills. Cleland tends to withdraw and have a hard time connecting with individuals and audiences, or he overcompensates and affects a blustery, hot-headed persona. I'm not sure either one is what you really want when introducing the Democratic presidential nominee.

But I could be completely and totally wrong. We'll know soon enough.
