Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani looked like the main contenders tonight, talking about Hillary Clinton and scrapping at each other. But neither did much to chip away at the reservations Republicans have about them. Mr Giuliani, handed a question about third-party candidates, did not address the fact that he might face one himself. Mr Romney talked about checking in with his lawyers and looked, throughout, as if he was about to burst into uncontrollable chuckles.
