I don't know. Reasonable people, I think, saw a pretty tame, calm, optimistic speech which really didn't warrant at all such a pathetic display of protest, and they're going to think, "Hey, nobody interrupted Obama's speech."

Of course it won't completely influence voters, but it can't help the Democrats.

Like Obama/Biden?

you know what? i'm not getting into a political debate tonight. you can go read the threads and you'll find my opinions fully expressed, and i've addressed every rather tired point you've brought up in this thread.

so i don't mean to be rude, i'm just not up for a debate right now.

i'm interested in figuring out what this night means, and what this speech means.

because i'm kind of fascinated by what just happened.

Yes, it was uncalled for.

What planet are you on???
I just got off the phone with a friend of mine who works on the Obama campaign and is the staunchest of Democrats. He was ecstatic at how he thinks McCain blew this speech. He actually predicted that in the press tomorrow that somewhere in some article will be the word "consession speech" - that's how bad he thought it was. Personally I didn't get to watch it because I was working (will watch it later tonight on re-broadcast). This same friend watched with glee last night thinking Sarah Palin was going to suck...after watching the speech he was truly scared. He admitted he totally underestimated her. Now however he is once again relieved. The point being: Here's a guy who despises both McCain and Palin but actually has the honesty to admit that Palin is a force to be reckoned with. Unlike most biased Democrats on FYM.

So, you truly think that the indecisive voter is going to be thinking 61 days from now "You know, those three protesters at the RNC were just wrong! I am voting McCain!"?

You obviously do not think highly of these independents.

Most undecided voters have already forgotten about the three protesters. They are trying to determine which candidate aligns with their values.

Biden has experience...Obama still has done nothing. Still puts them well behind the GOP

Independents, at least those starting from scratch more or less, immediately saw a low display by the left. That's all I'm saying. It didn't help their cause.

In case the FoxNews web site it to Right-leaning for you...I dont think anyone would mistake the NY Post as a conservative paper
