Sights and sounds of the DNC
Former VIce President Walter Mondale
Former United States Vice President Walter Mondale is at the University of Minnesota watching the DNC with a large group of college students.
Former Vice President Walter Mondale spoke in front of a group of University of Minnesota Students on Thursday evening. With his speech scheduled in between the speeches of Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama, Mondale made things short and sweet to his much small audience. His main points: getting the youth ready to vote in November, and discussing how government helps students make college more affordable. Specifically in his own case, the GI Bill allowed him to not only graduate from the University of Minnesota, but to also graduate from the University of Minnesota Law School. He spoke to a group of 100 or so students in a small lecture hall, who all enthusiastically welcomed Mr. Mondale to speak. During the convention, he sat front row center of all the students watching both Biden and Obama deliver exceptional speeches, and even cheered along with all of the students.
