24-Hour Dorman: Reading the Palin tea leaves

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

John McCain's decision to add Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to the GOP
ticket is enormously popular with members of the Iowa delegation here
at the Republican National Convention. Again and again, I've talked
to delegates who were only so-so on McCain's prospects just days ago
who are now fired up. Her background, her conservative credentials,
her guns, they love everything about her. Although they're still a
little uncertain how to pronounce her name. At this morning's
delegation breakfast I heard Paylin and Paulin and Peelin and Pulin.
Never mind that. What they know, they like. "I would walk on broken
glass to get this team elected," said Steve Scheffler, a GOP national
committee member, chairman of the delegation and the leader of the
Iowa Christian Alliance. He says Palin was his first choice for VP.
