Watching Obama, one of the best orators of recent years, giving the speech at the convention. Very powerful, very stirring, very effective. He's extremely charismatic and says many things very close to what I (and I suspect many others) want to hear.
Too bad the election's rigged by Republican-made voting machines and street-level dirty tricksters, and the American heartland's teeming with racists. (See this excellent Slate piece).
