VIEWER'S GUIDE

* New York Rep. Susan Molinari was named keynote speaker to increase the GOP ticket's appeal to moderate women voters. The effectiveness of her remarks--and how they are received by delegates who largely disagree with her support of abortion rights--should determine how the night is assessed

* In outlining what the GOP sees as various failures of Bill Clinton's administration, the program must strike a tough tone while avoiding shrillness.

* The night offers a chance to size up several of party's rising stars
