Thoughts on Iowa debate

The loser was clearly the moderator. What was Alan Keyes doing there?

But I thought that Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Fred Thompson did well.

Interestingly, CNN and Fox both had dial focus groups. CNN had a Huckabee clip that he performed well on. Fox had Romney and Thompson.

Probably the most memorable piece was Thompson refusing to raise hands. That’s kinda lame.

I also think that Huckabee dodged a bullet. It could have been a great opportunity for everybody to whack at him. It was probably the last opportunity for people to do that. And it didn’t happen.

UPDATE: Also, there was Rudy Giuliani’s line that might come back to haunt him.
