Former city GOP Chairman Art Mocabee sent this after the speeches at last night's Republican convention in St. Paul, Minn. --
Tuesday night's entry to the convention was peaceful and un-eventful. The entire delegation made it in safe and secure. The real excitement began when Cindy McCain entered the convention floor followed by Geroge H and Barbara Bush's entry to the VIP box.
Laura Bush's last speech to us was inspirational as she, in her most gracious of way, thanked the American people for the privilege of serving as our First Lady for the last eight years. She detailed her husbands accomplishments and took a few shots at the other side. W followed via satellite.
The real power of the night belonged to Fred Thompson and our own Joe Liberman. Our delegation is energized and the night set up what we hope will be a supper night on Wednesday with Governor Palin's acceptance speech.
Off to the party...more on Wednesday!
