As the four-day 2008 Republican National Convention came to an end Thursday night, presidential nominee Sen. John McCain and running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin waved to the cheering crowd in St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center.
A former prisoner of war, McCain revved up the convention hall with his acceptance speech saying, “I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else's ... I loved it for its decency; for its faith in the wisdom, justice and goodness of its people. I loved it because it was not just a place, but an idea, a cause worth fighting for. I was never the same again. I wasn't my own man anymore. I was my country's.”
A “Code Pink” protester briefly disrupted McCain's speech to which he said with a big smile, “My dear friends - please don't be diverted by the ground noise and the static.”
He vowed during his speech to vanquish the “constant partisan rancor” that grips Washington as he launched his fall campaign for the White House. “Change is coming,” he promised the audience of thousands in the hall and the prime-time television audience of millions watching.
“Fight with me. Fight with me. Fight with me. Fight for what's right for our country,” he said.
