This little attempt by Glenn Beck to do McCain's thinking for him, I thought, was actually really good. It was a little intellectual and tepid for an RNC speech, but I thought it summarized the Republican platform excellently, and provided a foreign policy edge to the domestic policy-heavy speech of Palin.
I'm not crazy about the idea that Palin might someday be asked to lead the country by herself. But neither did I like the thought of McCain ruling solo, considering how silent he is on domestic issues. Republicans are doing the right thing by stressing her and McCain's mutual complimentariness. I'm not nearly as confident in either one alone, as I am in the two of them together.
