Given that convention speech snippets may be all voters can expect to hear from Palin in the coming days and perhaps beyond, it's worth reviewing some of the assertions she made to the crowd in St Paul.
Bud McFarlane tells me that right now "a friend" of his is working with Palin on foreign affairs. "She's clearly very intelligent," he says. "It's a good sign she hasn't been afraid to say what she doesn't know. That was Ronald Reagan's strength."
