The crowd at the Democratic National Convention continues to get pumped up about their candidate, President Barak Obama.

 

Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley was electrified by President Clinton's speech and feels he hit the right notes.

"Bill Clinton used all of his experience and rhetorical skills to lay out the case of how we have a lot of work to do to  put this economy back on track, and we're not going to succeed with the top-down approach that put us in trouble in the first place. And again, a very positive direction, looking forward."

 

Merkley says he's looking forward to tonight's speeches by President Obama and Joe Biden.

 

He says he loved having the privilege of speaking on behalf of the delegation to cast votes to nominate Barack Obama last night.
