John McCain said Thursday overnight he has a bipartisan record and the scars to prove it. The Republican presidential nominee said rival Barack Obama does not.
He was telling convention delegates that "change is coming" to Washington, and that he had a record of working with members of both parties to fix the country's ills. He said he will govern that way if elected president. And, he promises to reach out to anyone to help.
In excerpts of his acceptance speech, McCain was also bemoaning constant partisan rancor.
