On Point beings WBUR’s live coverage tonight at 7 with a look at Palin’s career

Here and Now host Robin Young discussed Sarah Palin’s role in the GOP with syndicated columnist Ellen Goodman and Diana Banister, a Republican consultant.

Robin also spoke with McCain senior policy adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin about the Arizona Senator’s plans to turn around the economy.

Also addressing the convention tonight is former eBay CEO Meg Whitman. Known as John McCain's "right hand man" on economic issues, she works the crowd at the convention like an experienced politician.

It’s a big tent, the Republican Party likes to say. But for years now the religious right has worked hard to put a pulpit in the middle, and has often been the face of Republicanism. With John McCain is the party’s Presidential candidate, Tom Ashbrook took at look at the role of religion in the party now.

This program aired on September 3, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
