CONVENTION OPEN THREAD…. In the past hour, we’ve heard from Whitman, Fiorina, and Steele. Romney’s on now. Also in this hour, we’ll hear from Huckabee, and in the 10 p.m. (eastern) hour, Giuliani will speak, as will, of course, Palin.

I thought I’d open things up for some convention-related discussion. Any compelling moments so far? How’s the analysis on the cable networks? Is anyone actually watching the convention? If you had to choose, would you say this is a dull convention, or the dullest convention.

The floor is yours.
