The Party nominating conventions this year were watched by extremely large television audiences. But even with these large audiences, it’s hard to say which party gained the most from its convention. I thought each had some good and some not so good moments. The speeches by both Clintons, Governor Palin, and Senator Obama were very good and received very good reviews. Senator McCain read his lines fairly well, but his performance was too dull and uninspiring for most of the Americans who watched.
Personally, I felt the appearance of Senator Ted Kennedy was the most moving performance of all speakers who appeared at either convention. Even his critics had to appreciate the Senator’s dedication to a cause. Senator Kennedy’s overcoming physical limitations to make an appearance had to be admired by all Americans. I salute the Senator for his courage and grit and also pray that he will have a full recovery from his health problems.
I may be the only person who feels this way, but I am glad the conventions are over so the candidates can get out to the states where ordinary folks can get a look at them and hear their plans for America. It’s as clear as can be that the economy is the number one issue with the public and one the candidates must not only understand, but must have the capacity and ability to solve. In my opinion, that makes it sort of tough for the GOP nominee. Senator McCain has had to reverse his stand in a number of areas dealing with the economy. For example, McCain was totally against all forms of governmental regulation, but is now for regulation.
