I was on lunch today when the announcement came out about Sarah Palin as McCain's running mate. I ate lunch in my car and listened to her acceptance speech. For all of the buzz I hear about Obama's speeches, this lady blew any of Obama's speeches out of the water.
Mrs. Palin's speech was exciting, positive and moving. She did not talk about how bad America is. She didn't run anyone down. She didn't play anyone against each other. She conveyed that she takes her role as a public servant as just that, a servant; not a messiah.
Sarah Palin also did something that Obama has been unable or unwilling to do: Go down the list point by point, bullet by bullet what she has accomplished while in office.
