Schweitzer audibled?

That’s what Politico is saying.

“We had a convention that went through the first day and didn’t get anybody fired up,”said Schweitzer,who spoke on the second evening after keynote speaker Mark Warner of Virginia. “We didn’t have anybody stand up,and we didn’t have anybody get excited,”he said.

“Sometimes you go to the line and you say,‘Let’s go,’”

“If you would have turned around and looked at the teleprompter,you would have seen that for most of my speech,it didn’t move,”he said.

So Gov. Schweitzer perceived the convention’s biggest problem and pulled a Scramblin’Fran by addressing it extemporaneously? I’m even more impressed with his speech now than I was on Tuesday.
