Thoughts on Gibson Interview with Sarah Palin?

ABC has been airing Charlie Gibson's interview with Sarah Palin. You can see various parts of the interview at ABC News or on Youtube. I was pleasantly surprised by Palin's performance. I thought Gibson was quite tough in his questioning. For example, during the very first part of the interview, Gibson kept on firing at Palin over and over about whether she had enough foreign policy experience to be Vice-President (even condescendingly suggesting she had hubris). And later, Gibson was unfair when asking Palin about whether Iraq is a "task from God." Yet throughout all, Palin remained composed (though maybe a little nervous) and seemed to handle the tough questions well. Some people are saying Palin messed up on not defining the "Bush Doctrine" and in discussing Georgia and Russia.... but I didn't see that in the interview, considering Gibson doesn't really know what the Bush Doctrine is either and Palin has a similar position with regard to NATO and Georgia as Obama and Biden.
What are your thoughts?
