When Johnny Comes Marching Home...

The plan is for Kerry to walk through the convention floor on his way to the podium. His first stop on the way, the Missouri delegation. Missouri has voted for the winner in every presidential election since 1948. So good move John, get some of that "show-me-state" mojo on your sleeve on your way to your acceptance speech. The Kerry camp is saying that his speech should last around 55 minutes. That's political speak for, over an hour. I hope this thing doesn't drone on and on. This will be Kerry's last oportunity to speak directly to the American people, and the last thing he wants to do is bore the shit out of them. There aren't that many un-decided voters out there, so he needs to set himself apart some how. But he doesn't want to go to negative, he has to walk that fine line between pointing out the problems of the current administration, and letting people know what he would do different. A few people, who may not be thrilled with Bush, still need a reason to vote for Kerry. We will just have to sit back and see how it goes. I'm on pins and needles.
