C-SPAN Celebrates The National Conventions With ‘I Accept Your Nomination’ Supercut

Twitter is abuzz as Mitt Romney secures the GOP Presidential nomination, officially, and to celebrate C-SPAN has released a supercut of every Republican and Democratic candidate accepting the Presidential nomination since 1984.

Watch as Ronald Reagan, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, George Bush, Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, Al Gore, George W. Bush, John Kerry, John McCain, and Barack Obama proudly say, “I accept your nomination!”

It’s like a trip back in time in a political time machine!

C-SPAN has been covering the Democratic and Republican conventions since 1984 (which is why the video only goes back that far), and as an added bonus they’ve thrown together another supercut featuring some of the silliest patriotic wear from the past 28 years.  Who knew there could be so many variations of patriotic party hats?!
