I thought she gave a good speech - If anything, she's better than John.

Some of her sarcasm won't travel well - out in real America. I fear.

McCain's biggest problem is that he is not conservative enough.

For ex:

Two complaints

She should not have emphasised Hockey - That's a Kerry sport and its popular in blue states McCain can't win.

She should not have said McCain was always the same in public and private - She's settting McCain up for ads constrasting his public statemenst vs. his private musings.

anon - i'd rather believe the blue states will now give up hockey for another sport - they both did quite well with their speeches.

If I were a radical running for president, and I wanted to prevent reporters from digging too deeply into my past, I would probably provide them with an easily accessible fairy tale cover story about my life and background, so as to discourage them from doing the hard work of digging to deeply.

But then, it's just possible that some aspects of my real life might get inadvertently blurted out...

Thoroeau, "Walden"

If I should attempt to tell how I have desired to spend my life in years past, it would probably surprise those of my readers who are somewhat acquainted with its actual history; it would certainly astonish those who know nothing about it. I will only hint at some of the enterprises which I have cherished.

In any weather, at any hour of the day or night, I have been anxious to improve the nick of time, and notch it on my stick too; to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line. You will pardon some obscurities, for there are more secrets in my trade than in most men's, and yet not voluntarily kept, but inseparable from its very nature. I would gladly tell all that I know about it, and never paint "No Admittance" on my gate.

I long ago lost a hound, a bay horse, and a turtle dove, and am still on their trail. Many are the travellers I have spoken concerning them, describing their tracks and what calls they answered to. I have met one or two who had heard the hound, and the tramp of the horse, and even seen the dove disappear behind a cloud, and they seemed as anxious to recover them as if they had lost them themselves.
