Transcript for FiveThirtyEight: Recording our emergency Elections Podcast at the DNC
She is not me. Obama ask public speaker. It was a tightly written and I think tactically Smart speech. It got some real applause in the crowd he also had some heckling from. A contingent of Bernie brewer sir I Heidi right my -- with who. Against. Just everything I think you knew if you were listening. If you're watching it here analysts Andrea do you concede it's in there where there are a lot of chants of Hillary Hillary Hillary and some of those work. Organic. Unions. She thinks she's at speeds but a lot of them work covering up. The news or Apple's. It's a little bit of a two sided Plano where they were really included moments in the connection because he had an audience that list. Participating. And excited. You know the moments which is at the nomination. Talked to this hearing glass ceiling repairing roads and very emotional. I mean you know there at the ten highest emotional moments of the course the four days for her than anything GOP convention apart from the troops beach. Just more vivid anxious excitement out. Is it okay. Michelle Obama really tough Michelle Obama. Barack Obama. The father who had his son killed Newsom of American Carol. And Joseph Biden. Were you hearing moments of clues that would sort of make you go oh I see this is setting up for a general election messaging. This group word for this group where this line it's. Well throughout the right. I mean all of this to me that there was a series when she talked about minimum wage when she was talking about trade. Just talked about all of these different things we're clearly she was trying to dig deeper poll has the things which was trying to talk to the middle of the electorate. And that's what I think these final few days were really about right it was progressive Monday it was centrist Thursday. And that's what this through and I talk and taco Tuesday French fry Wednesday. Have a different fronts but I. But I think what was so amazing to me. About just this speech in this final day in general in the final two days in general. Is that we have come to learn of this country's political spectrum as a singular. Over the past few election cycles there's a left and there's a right. And in fact what we saw. In Philadelphia. Is that that way of thinking perhaps no longer applies there is a second dimension don't non. You can describe it any way you want I think Clinton. Supporters would describe it is perhaps. Sane and competent person's incompetence that's the way that Michael Bloomberg would have described it. But in perhaps it's an insider outsider thing that's going on or well educated and not so well educated. But clearly that there is a second dimension going on and that's why you saw all those Republicans endorsing Hillary Clinton and general Allen endorsing her as well. Just to return to something. Touched on there was a real theme of sacrifice every bit about this convention there were people survived 9/11. People. We were parents and Celine. Military members people who were relatives of slain police officers tonight as well so it wasn't easy. If the Democrats painted a picture of an America without problems but it was more this idea that was threaded throughout the convention it. We've got a lot of problems we make sacrifices. But the future is still bright as opposed to. Where a relatively great in just told me.
