Delegates Primed for Kerry Speech at Convention 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.
