Things are likely to go downhill from here, and even the reception of Sarah Palin at the RNC as it stands now is not overly warm.
But this article definitely shows signs of hopefulness for Republican operatives. Clearly the Mike Murphys of the Republican Party are not happy. But the moderate Republican woman who speaks in the article certainly is.
The question is: do these women represent enough of a positive upswing to get the Republican ticket though? How much does the fact that she’s a woman outweigh her strongly Conservative views with moderates, for how long and with how many people?
Time will tell.
