Best (and most effective) speech at DFL Convention

Download podcast ! (runs 10:31)
The 2006 DFL State Convention is fading from memory, but one of the lessons from it should not.

If you speak from your heart, people will support you.

Steve Kelley, who was expected to finish last in the endorsement race for Governor proved that point on the second day of the convention. He won over most of the delegates who were wavering in their support for the other two candidates. It was the most effective speech of the convention…which is why it is my favorite speech of the convention. Listen to it here.

This was the speech Steve Kelley should have given six months ago. If Mike Hatch or Becky Loury want to win in September and November they should pay close attention to not just the content, but the conviction in how Kelley said it.
