Some disenfranchised conservatives have gotten some pep in their step. At least we have something (or someone) to vote for, as opposed to just voting against Obama.
Oddly in the same vein, picking Palin probably secured Obama the majority of the discouraged Hillary voters since they view her as too conservative to swing.
