ST. PAUL, Minn. — Vice Presidential pick Sarah Palin has left the hall, and so have half the attendees.

The roll call is now underway, but does it really matter?

Palin charmed the crowd here, no doubt. They loved her lines about not being part of the Washington establishment, the way she poked fun at the stagecraft last week in Denver (noting the Styrofoam Greek columns), her family waving to the crowd.

How did she play outside the hall, with the swing voters and women the John McCain campaign needs to capture?
