It was immensely entertaining and revealing - another coup for CNN and YouTube. Anderson was great. I live-blogged. Here's my bottom line: Huckabee scored. Here's my take on the classic Romney-Giuliani "sanctuary mansion" spat; and the McCain-Romney smackdown on waterboarding. McCain won my support on the torture question alone. It is, to my mind, the deepest moral issue this country is now refusing to face. And McCain faced it - eloquently, passionately, and courageously, given the state of today's GOP. I hope he surges; but Huckabee now seems hard to stop in Iowa - and in the South. The GOP deserves him. He's who they now are.
The US is particularly miserable at putting aside money for the future. Should we blame our paychecks or our psychology?
