Update (28 March). Apparently, I’m not the only one who feels this way. From the comments:
feeling is I would go to a rally for McCain if Palin was there just to
perhaps meet her or hear her speak. Then I’d go home and vote for
J.D.Hayward." That is exactly what happened at yesterday’s rally here
in Tucson. The McCain campaign made the mistake of letting Palin speak
before their guy. The result was a mass exodus out of the hall when
McCain took the podium.
