Tonight John Kerry accepted the Democratic Party's nomination for President.  Here are a few highlights from his speech:

"And as president, I will bring back this nation's time-honored tradition: The United States of America never goes to war because we want to, we only go to war because we have to," Kerry said.

"I want an America that relies on its own ingenuity and innovation -- not the Saudi royal family."

And here's a long profile of Kerry from the New Yorker.
