You’d think he could have been coached to give a better speech. So he’ll never be a barn burner of a speaker - if I were going to vote for whoever is the best speaker I’d vote for Obama - which I sure am NOT doing.

Why is it the Democrats get these speakers and we get the substance? BJ could give a speech (according to some) and of course Obama...blah blah blah. We end up with the good ideas but are unable to communicate them in an effective way for TV. Oh Ronaldus Magnus, I miss you!

I'll vote for the Democrat McCain in an attempt to keep the Marxist Obama from winning. McCain loves his country.

I have a guess at the answer to your question... The media, and open primaries.

If Romney puts Michigan not only in play but in the column for McCain, then he should be given serious consideration.

McCain needs to get over his personal problem with Romney. Nothing was given to Romney, he’s gone out and done the right things to be successful.

But he’s not part of the corrupt Senators club. McCain does annoy me with his fraternal comments about Obama and Shrillary. Enough already.

I wonder if it possible to have an election and nobody comes. It probably is the best we could hope for.

GOD SAVE THE REPUBLIC. Cause our politicians sure are doing everything they can to lose it.

Amen, on all points.

Hmmm..didn’t expect Skankles to win SD....

Late polling showed her surging ahead.

I'd love to see her win both tonight....heads in the Clinton and Obama households should explode simultaneously.....and the Dimm super delegates will all be hung over tomorrow ;^D

That Shrillary takes one more state is great as Obama limps backwards to the finish line.

The irony of how each shows the weakness of the other is priceless.

we KNOW he can be nasty, he just has to direct it to the appropriate people. if obams starts taking jabs at him, i think it'll get his dander up. the kiss of death would be the clean hands, aboveboard, let's all be collegial approach.

Ditto and I pray Obama treats her as someone whose time has come and gone! Although Andrea Mitchell now reporting Clinton will not concede or endorse Obama tonight but plans to meet with him one on one within the next day or so.

Tim Russert feigning concern that the enthusiasm in Obama's base will not be seen in McCain's base.

“McCain’s already gonna win Florida”

I agree. He gets the Pan Handle. The Cubans. The old people. And maybe even a decent percentage of the Jewish community. He will get the expats from MI and OH, NE suburbanites that fled the big city problems.

Romney is smart. McCain just seems stupid to me. Look at the things he pushed as Senator. He can’t seem to think beyond initial concepts.

Our back-benchers coming up aren’t half-bad speakers - Crist, Jindal, Steele, Kasich... Kasich will probably run against Strickland for Gov of Ohio in 3 years.

You are so right that most Americans don't hate Bush. I talk to so many who still love the man. We may disagree with a lot he does, and his low approval ratings are a result of so many of us Conservatives who don't like his stands on illegal immigration, for one.

But his perseverance on the WOT and Iraq is admirable, and I feel safe while he is in office.

As a man, I admire and love him, and many Americans do as well. McCain - I will vote for him but I'll have to have a few beers before I pull the lever - I just can't tolerate him.

How on earth did we find ourselves in this predicament?

From a strategic pt of view, I somewhat disagree that he should have done this last night. Tonight he got the spotlight. Yesterday it would have been just another speech.

OTH, given how awful it was, I personally wish he’d given it last night with no coverage.

Too bad no one is watching, only Fox news is carrying his speech.

I was watching,but his speaking style just about put me to sleep!

Don’t really care what the MSM is saying - what has Hillary said? Why does everyone suddenly believe the media since it’s Hillary being pushed aside? Does anyone really think they won’t do the same to McCain, now? Starting tomorrow???

I think I need an aspirin, I feel an incredible headache coming on...
