embraced the bush family and george w. bush for the purposes of marginalizing house republicans and pushing them to the extreme. it was a devastating critique, but it was delivered with an absence of malice or anger, smile on his face, logic aimed squarely at the middle of the electorate where he's so popular. very powerful endorsement for president obama, another good night for them. >> affable, effective, as a democrat, it doesn't get any better. i'm sitting here, i'm giddy, i mean, this is exactly what barack obama needed. mending fences, bringing people together, understanding the facts. and i liked the way president clinton talked about the universe the republicans have painted president obama in, that they are not in reality, they are not in the real world. he even used the word "hate," and i'm glad he addressed this tonight, because you have to understand the climate before you can have the healing, and he also talked about a dysfunctional washington saying it doesn't have to be a blood sport and documented the kinds of things that he worked on with republicans and really in

tonight. but to chris' point, it reminds me of george bush and the 2000 campaign where he talked about people who had indeed come to the country illegally but he framed it as not an act of criminality but an act of love, crossing this barren desert through formidable conditions to get a better life for your family and you see in the republican party that the face that's put forward to latino community in this country is so often harsh, anti-immigrant, it's not the face of the marco rubios who actually do very well getting elected in western states. you saw tonight the face of the future. the republican party as a national party will have great difficulty competing if it can't appeal to the latino community in this country because one day you're going to see a race in this country for president between maybe a castro and a rubio. >> that's exactly right. >> it's coming. >> in the republican party right now, you're right, the george bush wing on immigration issues lost and the people who won are the jan brewers and joe arpaios and mitt romneys. they are in politics right now which

[ cheers and applause ] >> so here is what i want to say to you and here is what i want the people at home to think about. when times are tough and people are frustrated and angry and hurting and uncertain, the politics of constant conflict may be good. but what is good politics does not necessarily work in the real world. what

. i walked off the podium, went over to the sidelines and got george stephanopoulos and said, you got the wrong speech up there. >> jennifer: oh my gosh,. >> al gore: he vamped extemporaneously for seven minutes. they finally got it up, and he picked up the prepared text seamlessly. >> cenk: opposite of martin luther king jr.'s "i have a dream" speech. he had a text. prepared text and then the best part we know is him going off the text and speaking from the heart. so oftentimes that's when you get some of the best speeches. but look you got to be prepared, and people at home might not realize that all the speeches are written by speech writers. >> al gore: clint eastwood's wasn't. >> cenk: and look what happened. >> al gore: by the way there was a pew poll that came out today sampling around the country. what was the highlight of the republican convention for you? number one was clint eastwood's appearance. mitt romney was down 17. then i think ann romney at 10. and nobody else broke three. the clint eastwood convention didn't get the kind of bounce that the republicans were hoping f

she can make that bridge -- obama has been focusing backwards. don't go back to george bush. that's all romney is. if she can open the window to the future that's important not only for her kids but for everybody's kids that could be important tonight. >> is it possible today, can be overshadowed about the controversy every democratic platfo platform, not having the word "god" in there, although they have mentioned the word "faith" several times and jerusalem. >> the republicans and mitt romney making use of the israel plank. i think when you'll see when you're complaining in southern ohio, why did the democrats take god out of the speech? the jewish community, can you go to the jews who have moved to florida? in terms of this -- that become an issue as we go state by state. this is a nuts and bolt, state by state, county by county election. but i want to make it -- alex's point about can michelle obama humanize -- could ann romney humanize? it tells you people are so disen chanted with politics. they don't trust the politicians. and guess what barack obama is one of them now. four

. >> michael, let's talk about extremes. republicans thought george mcgovern was just a flat out dangerous liberal who was going to trade away the united states. democrats thought that barry goldwater was a bomb-throwing conservative. barry goldwater who today would be a moderate to center left republican. as there -- do you think the way democrats view donald trump the way donald trump views democrats, is that divide greater in constant dollars, as they say, than we've ever seen it? >> i think it's pretty much on the order of the two instances, can you mentioned, which were not only the two biggest presidential landslides, if you remember, nixon, said in 1972, between me and mcgovern, the clearest choice of the century. compared to that, the choice in 2016, is monumental. >> michael beschloff, with family and friends, summing up the four-day gathering of the democrats in philadelphia where it all started, that long hot summer. we have a long hot summer on our hands and we're just getting started. 17 minutes after the hour. we'll be right back with more. >>> ask yourself, do you
