CONVENTION OPEN THREAD…. The first night of the Democratic convention is well underway, but some of the night’s big speeches are still to come. If you missed Speaker Pelosi’s address, which was quite good, MSNBC has posted the clip.

Coming up, of course, are Caroline Kennedy’s remarks, and a likely special appearance from Ted Kennedy himself, and Michelle Obama’s speech, the text of which has been released to the media.

I thought I’d open the floor to some convention-related discussion. How’s it going so far? Which news outlets are screwing up the coverage of the convention most? Favorite moments?

The floor is yours.
