I'm not the only one who thought she did well:
The New York Times:
Palin Defies Critics and Electrifies PartyTom Brokaw:
She couldn’t have had a more auspicious debut.Orin Kerr:
I thought Palin was a natural tonight: She was as good as Obama can be, and I think that's pretty damn good.The New Republic:
Several moderate-Democrat friends of mine have been emailing--few if any would ever vote for McCain--but all agree that Palin was very strong. The more liberal among them are a little panicked.Glenn Reynolds has more.
Ezra Klein was less impressed.
You can watch her speech here and judge for yourself.
