LESS LAUNDRY LIST, MORE LIFE LESSON:

McCain’s speech more than a speech (Grant Swank, September 6, 2008, Canadian Free Press)

John McCain’s address to the convention was more than a speech. It was a life impression.

There is no logic in trying to compare his delivery style with any other speakers at the Republican Convention or the Democrat Convention.

It’s not really about style comparison. Yet that is as far as some critics have gone following McCain’s speech. They deliberate regarding his pauses, a supposed glitch or two, his soft-spoken sentences on occasion.

All of that is superficial assessment. What is truly significant is that McCain’s speech was about a serving life span over years.


Actually, the problem -- and not a fatal one -- was that it was more than life impression. Ditch the rest, the typical speech parts, and you improve it.
