RNC Day 1

I didn’t watch much of the Convention yesterday. After two weeks of the TV blaring Olympics in the background, both the Mrs. and I enjoyed a night off. I did catch John McCain and Rudy Guiliani. McCain’s speech was mellow and dignified, but also somewhat flat. He only picked up when ripping on Michael Moore, which was fun to watch but seemed out of place with the rest of his speech, and when he talked about those in the armed forces. It was as good as could be expected though; despite what he said last night, John McCain is no fan of the President. Rudy’s speech was more fun. It was probably a tad long, but still enjoyable. When it clicked, it had a wonderful conversational feel. Very emotional too, especially when dealing with 9/11. Rudy also got off the best line of the night, the riff on Edwards’ “Two Americas”. Monday was my night at the RNC; two men I believe would make far superior Presidents than either of the actual candidates, telling me that Dubya is where it’s at. It was also a preview of 2008, as both of these men will most likely run for the Republican nomination. I don’t know if either will make it though, are these two beholden enough to the evangelical wing of the party?
