It was the right speech at the right time, masterfully delivered, and when it comes to leadership, being able to do the right thing at the right time
in the right way is the most important aspect. This is what McCain has done every step of the way throughout this election cycle. Like a well timed
machine, he annouced his surprising Veep just in time to completely steal Obama's thunder following his big moment acceptance speech. The GOP
convention started out with another hurricane hitting New Orleans, just what they didn't need to remind the people about, which totally threw off
their schedule. Still, they pulled it together. McCain's brilliant choice for Veep grabbed the spotlight like she was born for the moment, and just
when it looked like she was going to overshadow McCain and steal the show, McCain delivered the speech of his life.
The DNC on the other hand stumbled through their convention. Constant gripes about the Clintions spoiled the whole event from the beginning. Bill
Clinton should be the most respected politician in the DNC, being one of the most successful presidents in U.S. history, but these elitists got their
noses too high in the air to pay attention to such details. Obama's Veep selection made a speech, I think, but no one paid any attention. Then came
Obama's big moment, and he gave his speech in front of giant plactic columns, like some ancient greek god or something. Think maybe he might have a
complex? Then Obama spent the first fifteen mintues attacking McCain like the rookie he is. The Presidential candidate is supposed to be
presidential, gracious, not the attack dog, that is supposed to be the Veeps job. I guess McCain should have selected a running mate that someone
will pay attention to.
Evey step of the way throughout this election cycle, McCain had done the right thing at the right time. He cleaned up in the primaries, when no one
thought he had a chance. He picked maybe the only candidate in the GOP capable at this time to give him a chance to win this election, and he did it
at the perfect time to steal Obama's thunder. His new running mate then delivered an awesome speech, re-invigorating the entire party. It looked
like McCain's running mate was going to overshadow him, and then just at the right moment, he delivered the speech of his life.
McCain came off as modest, human, genuine, as a man of the people. I'll take this over soaring rhetoric from some greek philosopher wannabe anyday.
More than ever McCain reveals himself to be the leader that we need at this important junction in our nations history. I'm looking forward at
watching McCain kick Obama's tail in the debates, where Obama has consistently fallen flat, and McCain tends to be at his best.
By the way, anyone wanting to know McCain's stance on the issues can always go to his web site and read them. The truth is the man is a moderate,
and has great positions on the issues.
