John McCain Pledges 'Change' In RNC Speech

The Republican National Convention came to a close last night with Sen. John McCain accepting his party's nomination for the presidency.

He was disrupted by protests from the feminist anti-war group, Code Pink, but McCain stayed on track with his "Country First" message.

NPR's Tony Cox gets an update from Farai Chideya, who watched the speech from inside the convention center.
