AWESOME RALLY!!! Let me encourage everyone to get out and VOTE McCain/Palin. What a down to earth American story. At one point she had all the vets acknowledged and truly she and Todd gave a heart felt thanks to our troops. The hardest thing for a parent to do is send their child into harms way...Sounds like Todd raised his son to be a man's - man. The gathering has begun...

As I sat there in the cold wet rain today I could not help but think of those days in the military and a book I read by Major Dick Winters. You might know the name if you saw the HBO series Band of Brothers. Dick Winters was a proven combat leader. He describes what leadership is and guess what? It sounds like John McCain.."First and foremost, a leader should strive to be an individual of flawless character, technical competence, and moral courage. How do you become a good man? You start with a cornerstone-honesty-and from there you build character. If you have character, that means the guy you are dealing with can trust you. When you get into combat, and you get in a situation such as we were in along the dike in Holland, when I gave the orders, "Ready, aim, fire!" nobody else was thinking about anything eles except what he had been told to do. The men trust you, have faith in you, and they obey, no questions asked. That's character in a nutshell. That is John McCain folks...

Character provides a leader with a moral compass that focuses his efforts on the values we cherish: courage, honesty, selflessness, and respect for our fellow man. Character also allows you to make decision quickly and correctly. Having moral courage is far rarer than physical courage.

I saw some protestors today all about college age carring signs against the war and such. I could not be prouder than to walk by them with my family and my young daughter say, "They must be afraid to go Daddy." That's when I told her that some people are sheep and others are sheep dogs. They guard the sheep, but keep the wolf at bay. They sometimes get confused with the wolf because at times they look alot like the wolves, but rest assured, they will always protect the sheep.
