on Aug. 26, 2008:

the mistakes of government, join its ranks and correct them." --Sen.
John McCain’s life is a testament to
the fundamental truth
that every American can be a force for change. A restless reformer who
has dedicated his career to taking on special interests and the status

meet the great challenges of our time. On Tuesday, the convention
program will underscore his vision of a government that is transparent,
principled and worthy of the American people it serves.
