OBAMA FORMALLY ACCEPTS DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION ON HISTORIC DAY
Sen. Barack Obama laid out his plan for change in America as he accepted the Democratic presidential nomination Thursday night, securing his place in history as the first African-American to lead a major party ticket.
Sen. Barack Obama accepted his party’s nomination for the presidency Thursday night.
“Change happens because the American people demand it — because they rise up and insist on new ideas and new leadership, a new politics for a new time. America, this is one of those moments,” he told supporters at the Democratic National Convention. “I believe that as hard as it will be, the change we need is coming.”
Obama pitted himself against John McCain, repeatedly countering attacks from his Republican rival while casting the election as a choice between change and failure, as he addressed tens of thousands of cheering people and millions of primetime TV viewers.
McCain would continue the policies of the Bush administration, Obama said.
“We are here because we love this country too much to let the next four years look just like the last eight. On November 4, we must stand up and say: ‘Eight is enough,’ ” he told the Denver throng.
In addition to slamming McCain on Iraq, energy policy and health care, Obama said his rival for the White House is out of touch with the concerns of the average American. It was 45 years ago when Dr. Martin Luther King gave his historic, “I Have A Dream,” speech in Washington DC.
MCCAIN SELECTS PALIN AS VP RUNNING MATE
Sen. John McCain has picked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, a senior McCain campaign official told CNN on Friday.
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, seen in a February photo, will be John McCain’s running mate, sources say.
Palin, 44, who’s in her first term as governor, is a pioneering figure in Alaska, the first woman and the youngest person to hold the state’s top political job.
She catapulted to the post with a strong reputation as a political outsider, forged during her stint in local politics. She was mayor and a council member of the small town of Wasila and was chairman of the state Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska’s oil and gas resources, in 2003 and 2004. The conservative Palin defeated two so-called political insiders to win the governor’s job — incumbent Gov. Frank Murkowski in the GOP primary and former two-term Democratic Gov. Tony Knowles in the 2006 general election.

OJ’S DAUGHTER CLOCKS OJ
The New York Daily News is reporting that O.J. Simpson was knocked to the ground Sunday by his daughter Arnelle in a tussle over his 32-year-old girlfriend, Christie Prody.
“Arnelle had a fight with Christie over Christie’s behavior,” a source told the newspaper. “That’s what started the whole thing. Christie has some problems with drinking, and Arnelle got mad. O.J. said ‘Don’t talk to her like that,’ and Arnelle pushed him.”
According to the source, Arnelle, 39, called 911 in a fit of guilt after she toppled her 61-year-old dad, giving him a minor head injury. The National Enquirer quoted a source saying O.J. was “cut on the back of his head, blood was coming out the side of his mouth and his lip was cut.” The Enquirer said Arnelle was also upset with O.J. for giving money to Prody, while his high school sweetheart – Arnelle’s mom, Marguerite Whitley – has to work at WalMart to make ends meet. Additionally, Arnelle lashed out at OJ for “ditching” Whitley to marry Nicole Brown Simpson, the Enquirer reported. O.J. was acquitted of Nicole’s murder in 1995. Two years later, a civil jury found him “responsible” for the killing.
The police report says the altercation ended when Arnelle agreed to leave O.J.’s house “in order to let things calm down.”
