CSPAN Video 13: John McCain, 2008 Republican National Convention
This video features John McCain, as he accepts the Republican nomination for President, at the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. This segment of his acceptance speech shows McCain giving almost obligatory thanks to President Bush and his eight year service to America. Senator McCain also praises his wife, Cindy, and his mother, Roberta. Note the crowd enthusiastically chanting "USA. USA!" at the start of this clip. This clip does a nice job of capturing the spirit that permeates most conventions.
