And to drive the point home... pulled words from average americans.
"I DON'T KNOW WHY BILL CLINTON DOES WHAT HE DOES."
The attacks were purposely left up to everyone except the perceived party pit bull.. a newt gingrich video meant to soften his image... and an entire production meant to soften the party's image..
But the night was also meant to combat the gender gap... so 38-year old new york representative and new mother susan molinari delivered the keynote speech, as the candidate watched from his hotel room, and his wife and running mate jack kemp watched from the convention floor.
