Everyone's been waiting all week for tonight, and now it's history. We can get on with the campaign. John McCain delivered a very good speech tonight, and addressed a lot of things I think a lot of Americans want to hear. His speech was a good hour long, and his wife also had a long speech. As with Barack Obama's speech a week ago, I came away with a greater appreciation of him as a person and a candidate. I'm looking forward to the campaign, because I think there are valid strengths to each candidate, and now they get to duke it out.
