it's not really a big national speech

It seems that some people are under the impression that this speech would be broadcast in primetime on ABC, NBC, and CBS to millions upon millions of viewers. In actuality, it would be shown on C-SPAN on Monday afternoon to far fewer (mostly political junkies).

Ron is pretty clearly at this point not going to be speaking at the convention. He's not on the schedule and he's going to turn down a nomination which is the only other way he could speak barring a hostile takeover. It's surely not because he doesn't want to speak. There's something he's getting out of this deal. I think it's pretty easy to guess what it is (and what he would probably lose if he did try to go out and speak).
