DENVER — Party loyalists and political observers believe the Democrats delivered on their messages of change and helping the American worker and middle class in what is generally considered a highly successful convention, topped off by Sen. Barack Obama’s acceptance speech as the presidential nominee at INVESCO Field at Mile High Thursday night.
Some observers said the closely orchestrated extravaganza was long on overarching themes but short on detail. However, they said the Democrats avoided major gaffes that could have hurt Obama’s White House run.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
