I once thought you were a pretty good guy.
But over the last several months of the presidential campaign, your actions and the actions of your staff have deeply offended me.
Sometimes I have felt enraged. Always I have felt dismayed.
Tonight, I watched you begin to rein in your supporters at a town hall meeting in Minnesota.
Tonight, I listened carefully as you spoke more respectfully of Senator Obama.
Tonight, I caught a glimpse of your humanity.
Now you need to take control of your Vice Presidential running mate, your family, your campaign staff and the Big Republican Machine.
“The hardest thing about any political campaign is how to win without proving that you are unworthy of winning.”
- Adlai E. Stevenson (1900 - 1965)
