Wake up the echoes!!!
That's what happened last night when Gov. Sarah Palin electrified the RNC stage in Minnesota. Her presence, willingness to step up and her honesty woke up the echoes of excitement inside of common sense, grass roots voters. It was exciting to watch history unfold with the first woman running for VP on the GOP ticket. It was even more exciting to watch her square her shoulders and stand up to the unbelievable, off the chart, media bias that she and her family had been subjected to over the past week.
I was in a morning meeting in a restaurant this morning in South Bend and several people stopped me either walking in or as I was walking out to high five me and they couldn't contain their excitement either.
The race is on and if there is one thing you can count on in November, it's this....the sleeping giant is awake and engaged with a passion for victory. My money is on the tried and true, loyal, conservative base to put McCain/Palin in the White House.
What a great, new day for America!
