After hours and hours of waiting, they finally allowed the candidates to come and speechify (after the local networks shut down live operations).
Pete Ashdown's speech was spectacular. Shaun got some video of parts of it, which he is working getting put on YouTube. Go check out his blog.
my favorite line, the line for candidates to come:
"I ran, because I knew I could do a better job."
I'll admit, I came within a hair of crying while he was speaking.
He also promised to not go anywhere.
I hope he doesn't.
