NPR's Melissa Block talks with delegates at the Democratic Convention in Boston about what they'd like to hear from John Kerry in his acceptance speech. Some say they want a message of hope — and Kerry should be himself, not worry about jazzing up his stiff image. We also hear from Kerry campaign adviser Michael Meehan, who says likeability is fine, but at a time of war, Kerry has the right experience for the job.
