Palin on Oprah

I don't usually say this, but I really wish there was a dial group on Palin's Oprah interview. What parts did undecided voters like? This is just the first salvo in the Palin Book battle. She's got a huge rollout with campaign-style events and interviews galore. Trying to be open minded, I thought she did pretty well. She's obviously comfortable in front of the camera, and she has an engaging story. But the ugly side of her, dissing her son-in-law, Levi Johnston and Katie Couric, coming up with a still inexplicable explanation for abandoning ger governor's post, well, those things couldn't have played that well. But I'm very curious to hear from you if you had the chance to watch. What did you think?
