In a few hours, McCain will be speaking at the RNC and I want to hear your thoughts and opinions on how successful you feel he was.

But first ...

What would you like to hear from him?

What do you think he needs to do/say in order to be as effective as Sarah Palin was last night?

Do you think he can 'pull it off'?

Last night I heard someone say that John McCain's biggest problem now is that he has to follow Sarah Palin's speech last night.

Do I think he can live up to last night's grand slam? No. Do I think he should try? In fact, I do not. He just needs to go out and be himself. He needs to talk about the McCain-Palin ticket and how their election would benefit this country. I'd mostly leave the other side and the media alone in this one; Palin certainly did a more than adequate job of smacking both around last night

I think this will help McCain's speech a lot!




ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - John McCain embarks on his final drive for the White House Thursday night, accepting the Republican presidential nomination and addressing the party's national convention from a stage that workers were hastily rebuilding to fit his "town hall" approach.

I don't think it will compare to Palin's speech but at least it will be done in a way that McCain is far more comfortable speaking!

Ack!! Tom Ridge is speaking right now.

Is anyone watching?

I'm a McCain/Palin supporter but Ridge is bombing big time!

Guess McCain can show Ridge up!!

I saw him coming up to the podium and turned the channel over to the Giants-Redskins game. I am quite happy that he wasn't McCain's VP choice. I don't really have anything against him, mind you, but...zzzzz...

Well I guess depending who the speech writter is that is how brilliant McCain will sound.

I don't think it's the speech as much as his inability to fire up the crowd and HOW he is presenting.

Now that he has audience participation he's doing a bit better.

Hopefully things will get better from here!

I never liked McCain much but he surprised me in the debates.

If Palin's speech is any indication, the Republican team has written a speech for McCain that will allow him to build from what Palin said, and hit it out of the park too.

Now if he can deliver it without sounding phony is another question altogether.

I would respect him more if he gave Obama and Biden some props. But I think his biggest tactic is going to be using the Democratic "losers" words against them to paint Obama is not ready for the job. Biden and Clinton both made comments about Obama not being ready.

I thought the biography segment on Cindy McCain was very well done, showed her to be someone who cares about people and not just some rich trophy wife.

I agree.

But there will be people jumping all over that and bringing up her addiction to pain killers which resulted in her stealing them from the charity.

That was ages ago so I hope that people can put it behind them.

What was up with the "You can't win an occupation" sign by the guys in the balcony? Jerks.

Looks like one also had a sign saying something to the effect of "McCain Votes Against Vets". I'm sure he'll be beaten to a pulp this evening, don't you worry.

Another couple of protesters were escorted off the floor while waving peace signs by the ubiquitous men in black baseball caps. Order has been temporarily restored...oh wait, I spoke to soon.

HAHA. That's funny.

I can't believe the protesters but he's handling it VERY well! Far better than someone else might!
