The Debate


So a lot of pundits were eager to call the debate last night.  I think in the rush to do that, they took Rudy’s performance and wove it into a zero-sum narrative.

Sure, the Mayor might not have been on top of his game, but it’s not like he imploded either.  Romney, Huckabee, and McCain all had pretty good nights.  In fact, I think McCain’s comments about OBL “to the gates of hell” really stole the show.

I can definitely see how some “social issues conservatives” might have been turned off.  Rudy needed to give definitive answers, instead he left the door open on things like Roe v. Wade, and elsewhere.

Then again, I might be biased.  What do you think?  What could the Mayor improve on?  What was strong/weak about his performance?
