Lots of eyeballs, great chance for Obama team to make the case.

For the top 3 Cable News networks, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, the ratings for the first night of the 2008 Democratic Convention were substantially higher than the first night in 2004, with prime-time viewership up as much as 88% and adults 25-54 viewership up as much as 127%.- by Bill Gorman, TV By the Numbers

Great to see that so many people are interested. And the increase is in a great age demographic for us. I just wish we could really present this to regular non blogosphere folks through some other lens than the corporate media, but hopefully people are trying to listen, learn and make up their own minds.
