Dateline: Xcel Center, RNC Day 1

A few &c. thoughts from the RNC:

- Michael Steele is sharp, really sharp. Watch for our NewsBusters interview with him to go up later this evening.

- Having never been to a convention before and lacking anything to compare it against, I am amazed by the energy and excitement among the delegates and other misc. participants.

- Everyone is talking about Sarah Palin and every comment I've heard so far is favorable. I've read skeptical reviews of her on the web, but you won't get any of that here at the convention. Granted, many of these delegates are her demographic, but still. It was important that McCain pick someone who would fire these people up because they are the ones who are going to organize the ground game in their home states.
