Los Angeles (E! Online) - Even a football stadium couldn't hold Barack Obama's audience.
An Oscars-esque 38.4 million watched Obama's speech accepting the Democratic presidential nomination, Nielsen Media Research said today.

Actually, the Oscar ceremony hasn't averaged 38 million-plus viewers since 2006.
Combined with the convention's first three nights, the Democratic convention averaged 27.7 million, making it the most-watched convention, Democratic or Republican, on record.

Now here some movies about speeches and reacts:

Who Was That Schweitzer Guy? - The cattle rancher electrifies the hall with a speech that makes him a national figure. Los Angeles August 27, 2008

"Can we afford four more years of the same?" asked Schweitzer, bouncing on the convention hall stage as his eyes darted around and his hands waved.
"No!" the crowd roared in unison.
Schweitzer electrified the hall moments before Clinton took the stage.

Hillary Clinton: "No Way. No How. No McCain

"Barack Obama began his career fighting for workers displaced by the global economy. He built his campaign on a fundamental belief that change in this country must start from the ground up, not the top down. He knows government must be about “We the people” not “We the favored few.” And when Barack Obama is in the White House, he’ll revitalize our economy, defend the working people of America, and meet the global challenges of our time. Democrats know how to do this. As I recall, President Clinton and the Democrats did it before. And President Obama and the Democrats will do it again.
I want you to ask yourselves: Were you in this campaign just for me? Or were you in it for that young Marine and others like him? Were you in it for that mom struggling with cancer while raising her kids? Were you in it for that boy and his mom surviving on the minimum wage? Were you in it for all the people in this country who feel invisible?

This is a fight for the future. And it’s a fight we must win.

I haven’t spent the past 35 years in the trenches advocating for children, campaigning for universal health care, helping parents balance work and family, and fighting for women’s rights at home and around the world … to see another Republican in the White House squander the promise of our country and the hopes of our people. This is the story of America. Of women and men who defy the odds and never give up.

How do we give this country back to them? ...

But remember, before we can keep going, we have to get going by electing Barack Obama president.
We don’t have a moment to lose or a vote to spare.
Nothing less than the fate of our nation and the future of our children hang in the balance.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich at the DNC: Wake Up America!

It’s Election Day 2008. We Democrats are giving America a wake-up call. Wake up, America. In 2001, the oil companies, the war contractors and the neo-con artists seized the economy and have added 4 trillion dollars of unproductive spending to the national debt. We now pay four times more for defense, three times more for gasoline and home heating oil and twice what we paid for health care.

Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, their homes, their health care, their pensions. Trillions of dollars for an unnecessary war paid with borrowed money. Tens of billions of dollars in cash and weapons disappeared into thin air, at the cost of the lives of our troops and innocent Iraqis, while all the president’s oilmen are maneuvering to grab Iraq’s oil.

Borrowed money to bomb bridges in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. No money to rebuild bridges in America. Money to start a hot war with Iran. Now we have another cold war with Russia, ..

2008 DNC: Patrick - Obama Understands America - McCain is against, more the same

“Barack Obama understands that we must renew our commitment to the American story today,” Patrick said. “And the gateway is through a first-rate education. That’s why Barack Obama wants to help our kids be ready to learn when they get to kindergarten, by investing in early education. That’s why he wants to fix and fund No Child Left Behind. That’s why he wants to better train and reward high-performing teachers, why he wants to emphasize more math and science preparation, and why he wants to support the college ambitions of young people by helping them pay for it ...”

“Now, John McCain says he believes in education, too,” Patrick said. ”But he is against fully funding No Child Left Behind, against fully funding Head Start, against hiring more teachers, and wants to abolish the Department of Education. ... John McCain is just more of the same say-one-thing-do-another crowd in the White House today.”
