Two facts captured for me how Mitt Romney’s campaign perceived his debate performance.

First, only two surrogates were in the spin room: Tom Tancredo and Bay Buchanan. None of the national surrogates in town. No Senator Judd Gregg, Romney New Hampshire campaign chairman. Where was Judd?

That leads me to my second fact. Judd Gregg was the first person to leave the debate. The first one. Not the second. The first.
