GOP Rebounds At Convention

Occasionally, I'll write some opinions about other issues beyond coaching and training. I wanted to share my thoughts about the recent Republican convention.

What a rebound! The GOP can truly be excited about the energy generated from the second half of its convention.

I wrote some thoughts last week indicating that the first half of the Republican convention was nothing short of disappointing. Questions about Sarah Palin’s past and botched responses to those questions left the top of the ticket looking a bit fatigued. After Tuesday, there were serious questions as to whether John McCain had made a wise choice in a vice presidential candidate.

Following refreshing speeches by both Palin and McCain on Wednesday and Thursday, the tide seemed to turn. Americans seemed comfortable with the outsider approaches Palin and McCain pitched last week and in subsequent post-convention speeches.

A new USA TODAY/Gallup poll appears to validate the success of Republican convention. Read about it on No Quarter --
