McCain Speech

OK, so I’ll admit it. For the Obama speech I went downstairs, had the projector up and the sound up high and turned off the computer so I could pay very close attention. For the McCain speech I had it up in a small Slingbox window in one corner of my computer screen while I caught up on Google Reader and only half paid attention.

It seemed like a very good speech for McCain. He is usually not super comfortable with speeches. I think he did everything he needed to do. He even pushed some post-partisan stuff, despite other indications that he is pursuing the perhaps questionable strategy of consolidating his base rather than running to the middle. It was no Palin speech, but it was a good solid speech.

And now the real election campaign is on. We have 60 days, 1 hour and 50 minutes from the time I am writing this sentence until Dixville Notch, New Hampshire votes and kicks off election day.

Hold on tight, it should be exciting.
