    but what happens when she gives a great speech that is universally lauded next week?

    Because I have no reason to believe that a great speech wont be written for her, or that she won't be able to perform it well.

    All of this she's horribly under-qualified is true, but won't it backfire partially when she gives a great speech next week?

      she DOES deliver a good speech, and outshines McCain?

      Not hard to beat McCain in speech giving.

      I think a very interesting metric will be:

       -- Days until she is released to the media for an unscripted event (not Faux, but MTP or FTN)

       -- Number of press events they let her have where unscripted and non-bio (e.g. the People cover story) questions are asked.

      That will indicate how well she is doing in their behind the scenes prep work.

      what Palin has to say about the War on Terra (TM) and how she plans to strongarm Iran.  Since she just now came up with a notion about Iraq, what is her nuanced philosophy about the war?  Isn't this what the neocon righties care the most about, after all?

      gives terrific speeches about the earth sciences - stuns me! And she even writes them.

      What I'm looking forward to are the one-on-one in-depth interviews, with tough questions and no handlers.
