2008 GOP National Conventions Speeches

“This is America and every woman can walk through every door of opportunity” - Quote from Republican Vice President Nomination and Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin's -"Life Lessons Learned" from her parents Chuck and Sally.

All political views aside. I am not posting what my views are or who I will vote for (at least not on this post) this post is strickly for the speeches.

I heard some great speeches given during the 2008 GOP National Democratic and Republican Conventions. Some were not so great.

Democratic National Convention

Republican National Convention

I also want to use a term that the 1990 WCPS David Brooks uses as a great "Magical Moment” when Governor, Sarah Parlin was speaking and members in the audience were holding up handmade signs that read “Hockey Moms 4 Parlin”.

Sarah paused, giggled and acknowledged the signs by adding a little quote as she vered off her scripted speech and offered this little gem - “I love those Hockey Moms”…“You know what they say?" "The difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull... Lipstick”?

The crowd ROARED with applause! Even though the crowd was already behind her – she used that little "Magical Moment" to connect with the audience! Priceless.

What do you do to create a "Magical Moment" with your audience?

Want to learn more from the 1990 WCPS, David Brooks?
