What CNN Says

John King says if you look at her job as reinvigorating the base she met and exceeded those expectations. He acknowledges that she is important beyond the normal role of a VP because “she is like them.” Campbell Brown now wonders how John McCain is going to be helped. When they are down to quibbling over whether the map is changed or not, you know it was a clear win. David Gergen intones that Palin was “threatening to become an embarrassment” and notes that “she erases that.” But Gergen also observes that Biden was really, really, really good. (Okay, I suppose those who love Senate-speak and don’t mind the weird grin loved it.)
