The Speech

Adequate.  Not excellent, or particularly grabbing, but he did enough.  He had a couple of very nice stretches (how his values changed during his time as a POW, and his rapid-fire optimistic closing), handled the intruding wackjobs and obvious teleprompter problems with aplomb, and didn't have any massive screw ups.

By the way, whoever thought of putting a full-length big screen directly behind the speakers should experience an involuntary swim in this Mississippi tonight.

More later.
