The writer depicts a scene of malaise and boredom at Invesco Field in Denver, during Obama's "historic" speech. He goes on to criticize Obama on his VP selection:
McCain's choice of vice presidential candidate made obvious after the fact what the party professionals felt in their fingertips at the stadium extravaganza yesterday: rejecting Clinton in favor of the colorless, unpopular, tangle-tongued Washington perennial Joe Biden was a statement of weakness. McCain's selection was a statement of strength. America's voters will forgive many things in a politician, including sexual misconduct, but they will not forgive weakness.
It is his belief that not only will the Democrats lose, but they will lose big.
That is why McCain will win in November, and by a landslide... By all rights, the Democrats should win this election. They will lose... because of the flawed character of their candidate.
