Palin removes acknowledgement of Clinton in her speech after Republicans boo Clinton
http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com /

After that, she went back to the stump speech she delivered on Friday and Saturday. But she skipped the entire section in which she highlighted the achievement of having a woman on the ticket -- as well as her praise for those who came before her, Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton. Yesterday, when campaigning in Pennsylvania, she received some boos from the audience when Clintons name was mentioned.

It is unclear why the campaign cut the paragraphs, which were widely praised Friday for appealing to Clinton supporters who may feel disenfranchised by the Obama campaign, especially after Clinton was passed over for the vice presidential nomination.

1. Strangely written article.
She dropped the lines which were booed. "It is unclear why."

Because they were booed!

Are these journalists (and I use the term loosely) rewarded for being dense or something?

8. Her omission and the audience "boo" suggests that...
...the Repukes finally understand that Hillary's voters are not going to move their way.

On Palin's first outing, they were actually delusional enough to think Palin could get Hillary voters simply because Palin is a woman.

Since then, the realization set in that it just ain't gonna happen.

Hence, no more mention of Hillary by the GOPVeep and no more obligatory applause from her audience.

12. Ding

Absolutely. Only way they would pimp HRC's name would be for poltical gain. If they can't get that gain, they sure as hell aren't going to prop up her cred.

9. Dang, read the comments after that article. People aren't buying it. I guess
that's why she dropped it...not polling well.

13. one commenter asked where she fell in the MSNBC Veepstakes
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24671291 /

She beat Rob Portman in round 1, lost after that.

10. I wonder who wrote that speech anyway - McCain was reading along with her
and it sounded like she wasn't real familiar with it either.

18. it's about 4/5 of the way down on the page - 3 polls
the results for Obama are 2/3 positive.

This might work but I don't know if you can vote here:
