All in all, I thought it was a great debate. Not sure there’s much else to add right now. Let the spin begin. I see from my in-box, it already has.
9:50 Uh, since when do questioners get to give speeches? Come on.
9:40 Last break – I want to clarify my remarks on Huckabee. I’m not saying he won this thing going away by any means. But I think he did himself a lot of good with the people he needs in the primary. That and the media that loves a narrative will likely make him part of the top tier after tonight. Whether he can carry that into Iowa and beyond is an open question.
9:30 McCain isn’t doing himself any favors with the Right on the torture debate. He’s demagoging the issue from the other side. Romney had the right answer.
9:20 I think all of then are having a good debate but so far I still see Huckabee as the big winner, especially in terms of the primaries, and so far Rudy could be having a better night, but he isn’t having a terrible one, either.
8:50 Thompson goes on the attack with his 30 sec. ad. Great come back to Cooper. Rudy handled the Politico story well. Romney seems to have handled the Pro-Life question well. Based on what I’ve seen so far, Huckabee is going to come out of this debate in the top tier. If nothing changes, that may be "the" story of this debate.
8:30 PM – Quick impressions – Romney and Huckabee up, Rudy down. Paul still crazy.
Update: A song? How utterly special and completely stupid.
I’ll update if there’s anything seriously interesting, otherwise I’ll just recap at end.
