Most people who watched Clinton's Democratic National Convention speech saw what seemed to be a pretty ringing endorsement of the current president. Of course, most people are not Newt Gingrich, who explained that the address was "eerily anti-Obama, if you just listen to the subtext" on CNN's State of the Union today. "You can take his speech, spin it not very much and it’s actually a condemnation of the fact that Obama learned nothing … out of the 2010 elections," he added. "What it does is actually shrink Obama. I mean, you have a real president, and then you have this guy who is a pretender." And then you have this other guy who is in desperate need of attention.
