Orrin Hatch is a republican rock star.
It was amazing to see all the interest in Orrin Hatch as he came over to chat with us on the Doug Wright show this morning. There was a swarm of camera crews around us from who knows where. I was busying trying to keep our webcam running. Today has been overcast so the light in the hallway we’re in wasn’t very bright. So sorry to all of you on the chat complaining that the camera was too dark. Mother nature just wasn’t helpful in that category today.
It will also be interesting to see what the convention will be like tonight with a full list of scheduled speakers. I’m very interested in hearing what Joe Liberman has to say.
As for the talk in the hallways. It’s almost all about Governor Palin all the time. I’m hardly hearing anything about McCain. Senator Bob Bennett said it best when he told me the pick of Palin as VP energized a campaign that was becoming somewhat boring.
