Our next president last night:
"The times are too serious, the stakes are too high for this same partisan playbook. So let us agree that patriotism has no party. I love this country, and so do you, and so does John McCain. The men and women who serve in our battlefields may be Democrats and Republicans and Independents, but they have fought together and bled together and some died together under the same proud flag. They have not served a Red America or a Blue America - they have served the United States of America.
So I’ve got news for you, John McCain. We all put our country first."
Hitting him where he needs to be hit. For too long the Republicans have recited this "Democrats hate America" meme while the Democrats themselves have sat back and done nothing about it. For now at least, it looks as if things are starting to change. And if we're going to pull this thing off in November, things had better start changing fast.
