History Made in Dayton

I just returned from Dayton and my on-stage seat. This gave me a great view of the back of people’s heads, but also a chance to meet and shake the hands of Gov. Palin and Sen. McCain (and their proud spouses). Enjoy my pictures and I apologize for the blurriness. There was not a lot of light and I did not take the “good” camera (too bulky).

The Nutter Center is less than ten minutes from my house. I was unable to go today due to work obligations.

Thanks for the pictures...they look great! I am thrilled with the Palin choice. She really shook things up today!

McCain/Palin all the way!

Thanks for the pictures. How exciting for you. I was really disappointed that ABC (Gibson) decided to break into her speech to get the opinion of fellow reporter George Stephanopolis. Like I cared!

What an amazing pick by McCain!! Gov. Palin brings in a distinguished record of executive experience, running a successful and popular Government in Alaska. An ideal ticket is one where 1 person brings in the Washington experience/foreign policy/national security experience and the other brings in executive/administrative experience. This can be seen from all winning tickets in the past few decades. The republican ticket is the perfect ticket now. She has a record of clean governance, bipartisanship and reducing wasteful spending and is an ideal choice for McCain's VP.

For all those who wish to raise the 'experience' question - do you honestly believe that Gov. Palin is too inexperienced to be President (a post for which, btw, she is NOT running for) despite being the Governor of Alaska for nearly 2 years and a mayor for many years before that, while Sen Obama is experienced enough to be President (a post he is running for)? If you honestly believe Palin is inexperienced, there is now way you could support Obama. Palin brings in executive experience, McCain and Biden bring Washington, foreign policy experience - what exactly does Obama bring in? Neither of the 2.

Also, it is incorrect to see the choice of Gov Palin as a gimmick to pander to the women voters. While that is a bonus, the most important point is that she would be an excellent person for the role of VP in McCain's administration, with the executive experience, to help him run the country effectively. None of us know too much about her, but whatever little Ive heard so far is immensely impressive. I request all voters to give her a fair chance, do some research and find out about her, and you will see that her candidacy is no gimmick.

Thanks for reading guys. More great coverage (and fun stuff) to come.
