This rather painful debate is almost half over. So far: McCain is strong and mature, Romney very aggressive and better than he has been, Huckabee is — I don’t mean to condescend– a charming guy, Thompson is blending into the background(you want him to be better but he just isn’t feisty enough for these) and Rudy did the most important thing he could tonight: give a darned good answer on the Hamptons issue. (I got protection cause people were trying to kill me and the cops did the accounting). On balance: McCain and Huckabee are helping themselves.
