(AP) - The first female Republican nominee for vice president goes before the convention and the American people Wednesday night.
A senior adviser to John McCain says that in her acceptance speech, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will make the case for McCain as "the best man to protect us in dangerous times." And according to Tucker Eskew, Palin will present herself as "someone with both hands on the steering wheel of America's energy economy."
She is also expected to go into detail about her record in Alaska and her efforts to -- according to Eskew -- "put the government back on the side of the people."
Palin visited the Xcel Center earlier Wednesday for a run-through and spent about 10 minutes looking out into the nearly empty arena and discussing where she would stand at the lectern and where she would look during her prime-time speech.
