The Democratic nominee plans to paint himself as the change agent, argues voters shouldn’t be fooled by the talk that comes out of St. Paul next week in his primetime acceptance speech at Invesco Field.

“What does it say about your judgment when you think George Bush was right more than ninety percent of the time? I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to take a ten percent chance on change.”

Also defends himself, the Democratic Party on national security.

“We are the party of Roosevelt.  We are the party of Kennedy. So don’t tell me that Democrats won’t defend this country. Don’t tell me that Democrats won’t keep us safe.”
