OTOH, no one was watching what went on *inside* the convention either. E.g., the Economist notes of convention coverage: "... there weren’t many watching millions. Only about 2m people — 1% of the electorate — tuned in to the round-the-clock coverage on cable networks. On prime-time television, most people were watching sports."

I caught only some exceedingly brief snatches of W's address but was impressed by his newfound ability to emit one syntactically correct sentence after another; they must have replaced a couple of his circuit boards. Plus, the guy was oozing enough compassion to make Mother Teresa look like Josef Mengele. Prince Albert has his work cut out for him.
