ST. PAUL, Minn. - Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told delegates at the Republican National Convention that she's an outsider ready to join John
McCain in helping to bring real change to Washington.
But Palin also unleashed a smiling attack on Barack Obama. She accused him of wanting to forfeit the victory in Iraq that ``is finally in sight.'' Palin said that ``Al-Qaida terrorists'' want to cause ``catastrophic harm on America,'' and that Obama is ``worried that
someone won't read them their rights.''
Palin was joined after the speech by her family and John McCain.
He asked roaring delegates, ``Don't you think we made the right
choice'' for vice president?
It was an apparent reference to the convention-week controversy
that has greeted Palin, including the disclosure that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant.
In a pointed jab at Barack Obama, she said there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers, and then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.
