This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

John McCain vowed last night to “shake up washington” and said he’s prepared to reach across the aisle to get the country “back on the road to prosperity and peace.” “We need to change the way government does almost everything,” he told the Republican National Convention.

On at least three occasions during the early part of McCain’s speech, demonstrators and war protesters tried to interrupt the Republican nominee, but they were escorted out of the arena amid chants of “U.S.A., U.S.A, U.S.A.” from the crowd.

Police arrested an estimated 200 anti-war protesters last night after using tear gas and percussion grenades to disperse a crowd near the state capitol in St. Paul, about a mile from the Republican National Convention.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will spend a few hours in Libya today and shake hands with Moammar Gadhafi, closing a nearly three-decade era of bitter animosity between the U.S. and the North African nation that has sometimes gotten personal.

Some southeastern states have declared emergencies and officials urged residents to head inland yesterday as tropical storm Hanna headed toward the Atlantic coast, where it could bring high winds and rain from South Carolina to Maine. Meanwhile, disaster planners eyed ferocious-looking hurricane Ike which continues to strengthen in the Atlantic.
