-Stassen speaks at Convention-
"Tonight, we celebrate a tradition of Democratically selecting candidates at conventions, based on the will of the people. The people of Minnesota may have chosen Harold Stassen, but the majority of the country, chose Pat Robertson....."
-pauses to some applause from delegates with the Minnesota crowd being the loudest-
"Tonight Republicans unite as one to pick a strong candidate to do battle with the Democratic party. The enemies of economic freedom, and prosperity, they chose a regulation loving moderate that likes trees just a little bit more than he likes jobs. And I have to be honest, I am still not sure Pat Robertson will be able to beat him....."
-Pauses again as the room is so silent you can hear a pin drop-
"....but I pledge tonight to help deliver Minnesota, and Pennsylvania for Robertson in November, because Al Gore doesn't represent the interests of Minnesotans and Pennsylvanians. He represents the interests of the democratic party and of Al Gore...."
-Pauses again to thunderous applause contemplating whether or not tonight was a good night to shift the focus from Pat and announce his 1992 run for Pres-
"I am asking the delagates of Minnesota, and any other delegates scattered throughout the country that I picked up, and any that mr. Dole managed to secure, to get behind Pat Robertson and unite unanimously behind 1 candidate, so that the nominee is strong and untainted. Because out primaries were a house divided, and a house divided can not stand, but a house united is stronger than all else"
-Stassen waved and left the stage, figuring less was more, and trying to focus on being charastmatic and getting the point across, Pat won this round."
