There was an interesting chart in Friday's New York Times that compared the number of times certain words were spoken during the 2004 convention vs. this year's convention. Not surprisingly, words such as 'energy' and 'change' were way up while variations on 'terror' were down. But the most telling -- and encouraging -- difference between 2004 and 2008 was the fact that in 2004, per 25,000 words spoken, 'Bush' was said 7 times, while in 2008, McCain was said 78 times.
