NPR's Peter Kenyon reports on the final day of the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia. Last night, Texas Governor George W. Bush accepted the GOP nomination. In his acceptance speech, Bush told delegates that he'll work for better education, stronger Social Security and Medicare, lower tax rates, a stronger military. He accused the Clinton-Gore administration of squandering the opportunities presented by the good economic times and the huge government surpluses.
