I hate to say it, but it was a good speech. Better than Palin's which was almost 1/2 a hate rant. He talked about public service, not rejecting ideas just because one party did not come up with it, etc.....
Too bad that's about the only time that he's been moderate the last few years. His party does not make over 1/2 the things he said as part of their platform,. He talked about peace and prosperity, but yet he "joked" (like this should be a joke to begin with), about bombing Iran within the last year (the Bomb Iran instead of Barbara Ann).
So it was a good speech, not great like both Barack and Michelle Obama's, that might make those who are on the fence and are too lazy to do their homework (or have actually enjoyed Bush's 2 term), vote for him.

Yeah, I thought the speech was good too. I thought he was humble and trustworthy. I said to my gf that he would make a good democratic president.

He's trying to steal the change slogan, but kind of hard when he's part of the party that messed it up so much that we need major change.

Its kind of like a priest who was caught molesting kids tell someone, hey, let me take care of your kid, I am changed.

He was doing his best to distance himself from the Bush clan.
