I can't even imagine what this week in Denver is like for our Political Junkie, Ken Rudin. Well, it's probably pretty exhausting living on a hybrid of Eastern and Central times (late to bed and early to rise), but wow, what a week it's already been. Highlights? Sen. Ted Kennedy's emotional return to the fold in the midst of his fight with cancer; Michelle Obama's speech, in which she worked to undo the damage done by her oft-misquoted assertion that "for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country;" and, of course, Sen. Hillary Clinton's speech in support of hers and Obama's common cause. And, of course, the week hasn't been all grandstanding, there have been some political ads too, namely the Obama campaign's "Seven Houses," the McCain campaign's "Hillary's Right," and the swiftboat-esque attack on Obama for his relationship with Weather Underground founder William Ayers (quickly — and quietly — refuted by the Obama camp). All that, Ken Rudin, and trivia and some tape from the vault! What's your favorite moment so far? Leave them below.
