McCain Wants Change, Too

His speech electrified the Republican National Convention last two moms tell us what they think.

mccain speech at Republican National Convention change

Arizona Senator John McCain accepted the Republican presidential nomination last night with a speech that tried to divorce himself from the record of the Bush Administration. In an unprecedented move, McCain admitted about his own party: "We were elected to change Washington, and we let Washington change us," adding, "we're going to reach out our hand to any willing patriot, make this government start working for you again, and get this country back on the road to prosperity and peace."

• McCain was clearly at his strongest and most sincere, recounting his POW experience in Vietnam and saying, "The good man in the cell next door to me, my friend, Bob Craner, saved me. Through taps on a wall, he told me I had fought as hard as I could. No man can always stand alone. And then he told me to get back up and fight again for my country and for the men I had the honor to serve with, because every day they fought for me."

• However, he received his biggest applause of the night referencing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. One couldn't help but think her performance on Wednesday night overshadowed the top of the ticket. 

• The speech was disrupted several times by Code Pink activists who were wrestled out of the hall. High in the rafters, a loan Iraqi war veteran defiantly held a sign: McCain Votes Against Vets. The nominee urged the crowd not to be distracted "by the static ... Americans want us to stop yelling at each other."

• McCain ended his address vowing to "fight for what's right for our country ... for the ideals and character of a free people ... for our children's future ... and justice and opportunity for all."  And with a massive balloon drop, the Republican Party brought their convention to a close.
