Why is a Democrat like me doing at a Republican convention like this? The answer is simple. Iâ€™m here to support John McCain because country matters more than party.My Democratic friends know all about Johnâ€™s record of independence and accomplishment. Maybe thatâ€™s why some of them are spending so much time and so much money trying to convince voters that John McCain is someone else. Iâ€™m here, as a Democrat myself, to tell you: Donâ€™t be fooled. God only made one John McCain, and he is his own man. Sen. Obama is a gifted and eloquent young man, but eloquence is no substitute for a record.
