    I gotta say... just listening to her.

    She knows here stuff and is confident when speaking and more importantly confident in what she is actually saying.


    I wish she was an independent.

    She threw so many lefts.... they were begging for a right.

    If tonight is any indication, she'll handle it with concrete idea's and confidence, not with rhetoric.

    I'm not worried. She has "moxie". It's undeniable. Except to MSNBC.

    I like her, I think the dems better be careful about what they say because she will take them to task.

    She so nailed it tonight. I said it a few nights ago as press was skewering her and her family.

    She was the PERFECT choice to counter Obama at so many levels. I feel very confident with her as VP of this country. In fact - President if it ever came to that.

    i think after tonight people will like her in general. she backed her family and made hockey mom jokes. she spent 4 days taking shots and came out and knocked them all down at once.

    if the dems keep at her on experience, they'll lose. they've got less combined than the vp they scream about.

    that left a mark.

    You can tell exactly how she did, because I see no rebuttals from the Obama supporters on here. Must be taking them awhile to gather their jaws off the ground.

    She had a great line about a mayor being like a community organizer, only with actual responsibilities.

    I was amazed. I went into it liking her and expecting to be impressed, but I was blown away. She was smooth, classy, likeable, and hammered Obama over and over on his lack of substance without seeming hateful at all

    I had a huge smile on my face most of the speech. She was better then the high expectations I had set.

    She reminded me of Reagan, watching him as an 8-year-old back in the glorious 1980 election (yes, I was actually paying attention back then - for some odd reason I was enthralled. Go figure). He then, and she now, in the immortal words of Roberta Flak...

    "Killing me softly..." She killed 'em with a smile and with humor and defiance like Reagan used to.

    God love her.

    And as somebody who lived through the Reagan Revolution as a child, I'll tell you (supporters AND opponents)...get ready for the Palin Revolution. History will likely record McCain's campaign (win or lose) as her springboard into the spotlight. And also keep in mind...Reagan ran and lost in the primary in 1976, then we got Carter. Four years of that crap led to Reagan's first landslide in '80.

    She didn't say much to me, I wasn't impressed really.

    What exactly would you have liked to have heard? If it was "these are the goodies government will give you by taking from someone else", then you were watching the wrong convention anyway. You should have watched the styrofoam Parthenon convention.

    So what did you disagree with? You are very light on details. Kinda like Obama is on experience.

    I didn't want to go there on Reagan - but that was as impressed I have been in a candidate in 25 years since Reagan. She commands yet is likeable and sincere, yet tough and upbeat.

    I will say in Clinton's first run - I saw a lot of that in him and called him next president first democratic debate in 1992 and there was a panel of like 10.

    She has "that" and not sure how Dems go after her. If they were smart they would stay away from her and focus on McCain - JMO

    I think years from now that will be viewed a historic speach.

    I am sure you were watching with an open mind as well right?
