Palin\'s speech- Is She Ready?
The Hiller Instinct: Palin's speech- Is She Ready?
Still, I'd say Palin is better off now than before the speech, which began with some voters feeling sympathy for her and others contempt. Now they all should have a better idea why she was picked by McCain. She was funny, feisty, confident and sincere. She sounded like a mother and a Governor.
You may not agree with her, but give her credit: she stood her ground when it was shaking all around her: she did not back down. She looked us in the eye...and we all looked back. And what we saw was a woman from a small town trying to explain why she's ready for a very big job. She'll get more opportunities. Because--tonight--she did what she really had to: she survived, with a smile.
I'm Andy Hiller, and that's my instinct.
