The victory speech McCain delivered tonight was beautifully crafted. McCain is not a great orator but he speaks with sincerity giving the lines that he delivers a real emotional force. The speech emphasised how McCain intends to cast himself as the national security candidate and a truth teller.
Tomorrow’s papers will be dominated by the remarkable comeback of Hillary Clinton. McCain would have been better served by a solid Obama win as his triumph then would have received more attention. But tonight’s result should still be enough to help McCain push on in his quest for the nomination.
