Round two of the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa kicks off at 7:00 pm ET tonight.  Big names: McCain, Huckabee, Martinez, Rice and Paul Ryan.  As I discussed earlier, all of the other speakers are fairly distant undercards; the most scrutinized event of the evening will be Rep. Ryan's acceptance speech, by far.  Though polls show that his favorability is relatively stable, he's also the least known member of either ticket.  Tonight is a gargantuan opportunity for Ryan and his message of fiscal discipline, but it's also a significant test.  Will he pass it?  Live streaming video is available HERE, our editorial team's live Twitter coverage will be churning below all night.  Add your own reactions and thoughts in the comments section, and be sure to stop by after the program for full analysis:
