Goodness! What a surprisingly negative column! Did someone pour sour milk on your cereal this morning?
I didn’t care for the speakers on Thursday night prior to Cindy McCain either; however, it was apparently structured to be the McCain’s night. Cindy got her baptism of fire at delivering a speech. No outstanding grade, but she did introduce herself to the nation.p>Senator McCain will never get any major points for being a public speaker. However, he did manage to emphasize the contrast between himself and his opponent. The next few weeks will tell the story. Debates, campaign appearances, etc. Ninety percent of the time devoted to conventions are largely a waste, being a big deal only for the delegates. br> — R. Goodson br> Vero Beach, Florida /p>
The flop here is your dismal assessment.
John McCain was John McCain — and he did exactly what he needed to do: He said what he believes. He did it straightforwardly and honestly. He mentioned issues that concern us all, even detractors and opponents. His characterization of education as a civil rights issue was inspired.
