This entire week's festivities have built up to this evening.  Tonight, Governor Mitt Romney accepts his party's nomination for President of the United States.  Much is riding on the address, the text of which Romney reportedly wrote himself.  The video tributes, the supporting cast of characters, Clint Eastwood and Marco Rubio are all welcome elements of the program -- but it's the nominee's 40-minute address that eclipses all else.  Last night's prime time session witnessed homerun after homerun from the podium.  Will the man of the hour rise to his moment?  The video live stream is here, our running commentary is below, and your real-time reactions are welcome in the comments section:
