In short, it was a good speech. It was not her best, (I still think her acceptance speech at the GOP convention holds the top spot) but she had a lot of great lines and had the crowd roaring in applause the entire night. The chants of Run, Sarah, Run, reminded me of the crowds in Grand Rapids only this time it was much more intense. I think the best thing for people to do is to watch the speech itself and make up their own minds.
As for the Chris Wallace interview, that was her best one ever, hands down. While even I will acknowledge that interviews are Sarah Palin's Achilles' heel, she knocked this one out of the ballpark. Assertive and confident, she never backed down and displayed a command of the issues. My favorite part was when she went after Wallace for making the Rush-Rahm comparison. Refusing the premise, she succinctly answered in the only correct way possible-"Rush Limbaugh was using satire..."-and made the critics of her look like fools.
