Adrienne Ross and Mark America provided comprehensive reportage and analysis on the speech. Gov. Palin also accepted the Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute's 2012 Woman of the Year Award two hours prior during a luncheon that was closed to the media. Gov. Palin was seen entering the hotel prior to the luncheon. Between the luncheon and her main speech, Gov. Palin gave an interview in which she expressed that a brokered convention would not be a bad outcome for the GOP primary and caucus process. Following her speech, Gov. Palin celebrated her 48th birthday at Matisse Cafe / Restaurant.
My special moment with Gov. Palin came at 1723 / 5:23 PM EST a few minutes after she started working the rope line. I also had a brief moment with Bristol and Willow immediately thereafter. I had met Bristol and her co-author Nancy French at their Dupont Circle book signing earlier that day.
