I just got home in time for the show. I didn’t miss Liddy Dole did I? Okay, speak up in the comments section – how many think Arnold will say “girly men” tonight? I think he will, but wouldn’t put money on it.
UPDATE: Now I do want to put money on it. (I just saw a reporter say the phrase will be in his speech.)
15 minutes into the speech: I didn’t think anyone could match Rudy’s performance last night, but Arnold is doing it. Nothing in Boston came anywhere close to last night or tonight’s speeches. I’ll bet there will be a lot of young people registering as Republicans tomorrow. The way the crowd reacted to Rudy and now to Arnold, I can’t imagine Bush being able to get through his speech Thursday night for all the cheering.
UPDATE: Since there was no televised Nixon-Humphrey debate, and it appears that Arnold has told this story many times before and that has been pointed out before, I wonder if he was speaking about a formal, single debate or rather the general debate taking place in the course of the campaign. I feel sure this will all be sorted out by tomorrow morning. The Hillary “truth squad” is probably on it at this very moment.
UPDATE ON DEBATE REFERENCE: Although many pundits on t.v. tonight have referred to Arnold’s reference to the Nixon-Humphrey debate (which did not take place), the actual transcript of the speech refers to the Nixon - Humphrey “race".
UPDATE: Crush Kerry has a great review of Tuesday night’s speeches. I can’t wait to see the first CA state poll taken after Arnold’s speech. I’ve always hoped Bush had a chance there – maybe he actually does.-- Lorie Byrd
