In his speech, the vice presidential candidate accused the Clinton administration of not helping children or reforming education.
The event helped warm up the G- O-P for tonight's appearance by George W- Bush, when he formally accepts the nomination for President.

With George W. Bush watching from his hotel room across town, the Republicans celebrated the inevitable in a very big way.

The Grand Old Party nominated the Texas Governor as their candidate for President.

Last night also belonged to running mate Dick Cheney, who accepted HIS nomination for Vice President. He promised change is on the way.

(SOT: Dick Cheney, R-Vice Presidential Candidate)

"Bill Clinton vowed not long ago to hold onto power until the last hour of the last day. That is his right. But my friends, that last hour is coming. That last day is near."

(NATS)

The third night of the Republican National Convention was EXTREME to say the least. The wrestler known as The Rock led the evening off with a question on the minds of many.

(SOT: "The Rock"/WWF Champion)

"You invited the Rock, the WWF champion to speak at the RNC? What's the matter with you people?"
But despite the lighthearted start, many here were preoccupied with the condition of former President Gerald Ford.
He's in the hospital after suffering two minor strokes, but doctors say he's on the road to recovery.
(NATS)


But tonight it all wraps up, with George W. Bush accepting his party's nomination, and hitting the home stretch in his quest for the White House. ))

Link's favorite subject was the big Type A locomotive. {bite?}
Type A locomotive number 1218 hasn't moved under its own power in almost 10 years. Until last week, it had been in storage in the East End shops. It's going back there as soon as the photo shoot is over.
Freelance photographer Michael O'Niell has taken pictures of lots of big shots -- including these guys. He needed some extra equipment to shoot something this big.
As darkness fell, there were a few last-minute touch-ups.
The 1218 needed some touching up, too. That's fake smoke coming out of the stack. The engine would need extensive repair work before it could ever be fired up again.
Finally, after some banter between the two photographers, it was time, and....

And what happened then was we had to get out of the way. Vanity Fair doesn't want to reveal too much about what the finished photograph will look like. We're told it will look a lot like a Winston Link photograph.
