I decided to take a break from going through the stuff in the attic, and decided to catch the convention in Tampa, I turned the TV on just in time to catch Condi Rice's speech, I always like Condi Rice, she always exuded calm professionalism. For a person who stays out of the limelight, she gave a good speech about the promise of America and the unlimited opportunities of America.
She was followed by the New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez who talked about starting as a prosecutor and later switching party after realizing that they were Republicans not Democrats. She also gave a good speech.
Paul Ryan gave a stem winder speech. He was humble, gave a good oratory speech, dogged the President for lack of leadership and after 4 years...still trying to blame the past administration. And the kicker line was to the 20 something that after graduating from college, had to move back to their childhood home because they can't find a job and look at the fading poster of Candidate Obama in their room and wonder what had happened. I though that was the most telling.
It will interesting to see what happens.....
