National party conventions have historically provided a platform for not only the presidential nominee, but rising stars in his party. Bill Clinton in 1988, Barack Obama in 2004, and Ronald Reagan in 1964 all gave primetime speeches at their respective conventions introducing the future presidents to national stage. With the nation watching this year's Republican National Convention, many were introduced for the first time to the likes of Utah congressional candidate Mia Love, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, among others. The speakers gave a peek of what the GOP could look like moving forward, in addition to testing their own political accuman and charisma on the biggest of stages.
On "Real News From The Blaze" Friday the panel discussed the speeches from newcomers at this week’s convention, in addition to grading the overall speaking performances of well-known Republicans and key components to the ticket, like Ann Romney, Paul Ryan, Condi Rice, and Sen. John McCain. Who hit? Who missed? Watch a clip below from Friday's show featuring this debate, in addition to a bit of commentary on the Clint Eastwood performance:
