RNC in St. Paul Day Four (Thurs. Sept. 4)

This morning Nikki and I went out on the floor as they were changing the stage for McCain. They added a runway so he could deliver his speech in a town hall style format.

Orson was a POW with McCain in Vietnam. Early this afternoon CBS interviewed him and we got to sit in on the interview. Orson said being a POW was an experience that changed him forever and he wouldn’t change it.

About 2:30 McCain did a walk through of the facilities. The stage was finished and cleaned up just in time for the walk through. I went down on the floor during that and got some video that you can see at a later date on WTV 8 News. Tonight McCain formally accepted the republican Presidential nomination. He had a lot of good things to say, though he is not the most exciting speaker. His wife, however set the stage well for him.
