Now, he’s getting going: “I can’t wait until I introduce [Sarah Palin] to Washington.”
Senator, I can’t either. That introduction can’t come soon enough.
“What you fight for is the real test.” He may not be as good as speaker as Obama, may lack his mellifluous voice, but so far, this is a far better speech, far better focused, far more gracious than his rivals. And far more heartfelt. It’s not as if his repeating some mantra or rehashing his party’s ideological creed, this man is speaking from his heart. He believes what he’s saying.
I am enjoying this speech. Would rather listen than blog. Perhaps I should have taken the opportunity to sit in the stands and listen, but I would not have been able to use wireless there.
He’s talking as a confident leader, strong and self-assured. I’m glad I followed my gut when I voted for him in the California primary.
Again and again, I’ve worked with members of both parties to fix problems that need to be fixed. That’s how I will govern as President. I will reach out my hand to anyone to help me get this country moving again. I have that record and the scars to prove it. Senator Obama does not.
The new politics Barack Obama talks about is the kind of politics John McCain has practiced throughout his career.
It was a good speech, not quite Palin, but better than Obama.
And cool it is to watch the balloon drop from above. And there’s more to come. I can still see them in the rafters.
