Fox News Debate

More

This was Fred Thompson's second strong debate in a row; it's as if he realized there was a real campaign and that he had real talent to bring to bear in a way that makes him look good and his opponents look silly.

Generally: Mitt Romney was mezzo-tempo tonight; he avoided saying things like "net-net"; the moderators didn't gang on up him -- unusual for a Fox News debate. John McCain had the stature of a frontrunner; Mike Huckabee seemed less fluent with foreign policy issues but was strong, as always, when defending his record as governor. Rudy Giuliani seems content to stay in the background.
