However, tonight when McCain's video montage began, I admit that I got a little glistening in my eyes. Not because of the video itself but because I felt something that I didn't expect to be feeling.
McCain deserves to be president.
I don't like to put it that way, but that's how I feel tonight. If our citizens look past the man who has spent his entire adult life serving our country and instead choose the man who's been on the scene for 140 days, I will be very disappointed in my fellow Americans.
I believed every word of McCain's speech. I believe he meant every word of it.
He was not my first choice. I don't agree with him on several things. He asked me to do things I don't want to do; I don't usually want to compromise on things I believe to be true. But he's right that we have to compromise if we're going to get anything accomplished.
So I will fight with him.
And while I absolutely cannot compare my life story to his, and France is not quite as bad as North Vietnam, I too never loved my country as much as when I didn't live in it. I understand this love, though probably never to the depth that he feels it.
I believe that anything and everything he does for our country he does because he honestly thinks it's the right decision. That's what I want in a leader.
And the protestors who interrupted him, they showed themselves to be the classless trash that they are. McCain's right: they're static.
It's laser beam time.
