Huckabee more Presidential at start and finish but significantly weaker in the middle. He did little to boost himself in NH. McCain kept his sails trimmed. Dignified but assertive: good on tone and content. Rudy wasn't bad but seemed extra. Fred excellent but he can't seize command.

Small story: Wallace not the greatest moderator of all time.
