Now that an eternity has passed and we’ve had a chance to collect our thoughts after those busy two hours in Dearborn, I’ve reluctantly concluded that my first impressions remain my final ones. (We’re all Blinkers now.) Steve Moore on CNBC tried to single out John McCain’s performance, but no one else seemed to be buying. It remains that Giuliani and Romney were impressive. Fred Thompson had some fine moments as well as some weaker ones that played into all the stereotypes that became set in stone after he announced last month. Ron Paul no doubt pleased his many intensely devoted backers. But the short of it is this: until some votes are counted, we won’t know who has really caught on and who is going places. Until then, we’re all on a merry-go-round. February can’t come soon enough.
