I caught Joe Lieberman's speech at the convention last night. It had to be one of the most historic speeches ever made, anywhere! No, he wasn't the first Democrat to ever address The Republican Convention, he may not be the last either. He didn't tell the attendees anything they didn't already know. Actually, the speech itself wasn't the historic part, the RESULTS I expect to see from it, now THAT was the historic part. When Joe stopped talking to the delegates, and turned his attention to independants and fellow Democrats, he did what possibly no one else could have done. He, in just a few moments, persuaded millions of undecided voters to go vote for McCain this November! Well done Joe!!
What a nice picture of the new administration! John McCain couldn't have chosen a better running mate. I am confident that independants will flock to the poles in November to hand McCain/Palin a landslide victory. When was the last time we had the chance to elect MODERATE politicians to these two positions?? What are most Americans--Liberal, conservative, or MODERATE??? Are McCain and Palin moderate?? You bet they are!! Sure, they are both conservative in some areas, but overall they are moderate, some even say maverick(myself included)!
Back last spring, I made the prediction that McCain would take the popular vote with 60%. I don't recall if that was in a post or a comment somewhere. That may have sounded brash to many at the time, but I hereby reiterate that prediction, McCain/Palen will win in 2008 with 60% of the popular vote and a solid victory of the electoral college!!
When Sarah Palin introduces herself to America tonight at the Republican National Convention, American's will see for themselves what a great choice she is for Vice President. Her intelligence and charisma will shine through loud and clear. Hopefully, she will touch on her experience and people will see that she is actually more experienced than NOBAMA. Even if she weren't, there is only a small chance she would need to "be ready on day one", with NOBAMA, it is a 100% chance he would need to "be ready on day one"---and HE ISN'T!!
As a side note for any Alaskans reading this, all Americans owe you our heartfelt thanks for loaning us your native daughter and your great Governor. The loan will probably end up being for at least 12 years!
