"We Don't Call It The Show-Me State For Nothing"

MCCASKILL GOES AFTER MCCAIN

In her primetime convention speech (which the networks and cable seemed to ignore,) Sen. Claire McCaskill spoke about her roots and how they are similar to Barack Obama's.

"Her dad's family had the feed mill, her mom's the corner drug store. She worked her way through college and law school waiting tables and went into public service . . . That is my story, and it is an American story," said McCaskill. "It's the story of a man who was brought up my a single mom and his grandparents. He took a pass on big money . . . and dedicated his life to bringing people together through public service. Barack Obama's story is an American story."

McCaskill also targeted McCain, attaching him to George Bush.

Biggest Applause Line: "There is only one candidate in this race who has fought for equal pay for equal work by America's women. That candidate is Barack Obama."
