Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
No gaffes. A solid performance by Palin
Kimberly: hahaha. she hasn't found something to compromise on because they've always found a way to..... compromise?
I was JUST thinking that!
Kimberly: haha.. it was like when McCain last week was like "I don't want to disagree and.... debate?"
duh! you're in a debate!
Bragg: as this begins to wind down, i think this likely keeps the race as is. she held her own, made no major gaffe, but didn't excel to the point that she'll provide a real boost to the mccain-palin campaign. it remains obama's race to lose.
Kimberly: again with the diverse family!
come on, people!
Lynne: for me, since the expectations were so low for her (both democrats and republicans helped set that up), i think she probably helped swing a few voters their way, since she assuaged some concerns
Dontre: Her popularity is going to spike again. Just 'cause she showed us she's not the idiot we know her to be--she just trains well.
Bragg: she's no idiot.
Dontre: i disagree!
Bragg: she may be inexperienced, but she's no idiot.
Lynne: oh, oh oh - no, she didn't need to go after the media.
Dontre: the "media elite"
Bragg: why not? they went after her.
Dontre: she gave no interviews!
Lynne: puts her on the defensive
Dontre: they had to dig!
if she was forthcoming, they wouldn't have to go dig a pipeline into her backyard!
