“It was a genuinely outstanding speech. It was magnificent. It is the finest –
and I saw Cuomo’s speech, I saw Kennedy in ‘80, I even saw Douglas MacArthur, I saw Martin Luther King – this is the greatest convention speech, and probably the most important because unlike Cuomo and the others this is an acceptance speech. This came out of the heart of America and he went right at the heart of America…” - Patrick J. Buchanan
You touched on all McCain's weaknesses and laid out your plan for debating them in the coming two months.
80,000 enthusiastic supporters filled to capacity Denver's Mile High Stadium, wildly cheering your historic nomination and speech.
You didn't overtly mention Dr. King and the annivesary of his "I Have a Dream" speech 45 years ago--you didn't need to because you are the realization, the embodiment of that dream.
You did what had to be done in your speech. You have proven yourself to be a remarkable candidate who came from behind, overcame the mighty Clinton political machine. You have proven yourself to be a strong candidate whose campaign anwers all the ugly smears and swifboat tactics of the opposition party. Last night you made American history.
On to the White House!
