A new USA Today/Gallup poll has John McCain pulling ahead of Barack Obama - with his Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin closing the "enthusiasm gap."
Palin's presence on the ticket has done more than just provide a bump for the McCain campaign - it's started new national dialogues about women in politics, mothers in the workplace - and the media's attitudes toward both.
Today, Where We Live, we'll check back in with Shannon O'Brien, the former Massachusetts state treasurer, who narrowly lost a gubernatorial race to Mitt Romney in 2002.Â She was a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton - we'll talk to her about the rapid rise of Sarah Palin.
We'll also talk with Lisa Burns from Quinnipiac University.Â Her new book is "First Ladies and the Fourth Estate."Â
