Palin: Hot or Not
No, I'm not talking about her looks, but of the feisty speech she delivered. I understand that, as with all other candidates, the speech was written for her and she basically read it off the teleprompter, but her poise and delivery were spot-on and captivating. The way she hit out at Obama reminded me or a boxer taking effective jabs at the opponent to wear him down before going for the final knockout. Obama might have finally have met his match in eloquence.For someone who had a lot riding on her credibility, she made herself look like a pro, again, based solely on the speech. The credentials she cited were impressive. I'm naive enough to assume that when she goes on national television that she doesn't make up her accomplishments. There is a lot she needs to prove in the coming weeks, but after last night's smoldering hot speech, she seems ready to take on the challenges that await her.
