OK, I had more but it got eaten by the horrid “Beep Bop Boop” wordpress editor that is becoming ever harder to avoid (and works even worse in the R.Pi).
The short form is that all of the folks on the stage were decent. Any of them is better than Obama or Madam Hillary. But with that said:
Generally, I’d rank them more or less as Carly, Jindal, Santorum, everyone else. But any of them would be an OK president. Even Lindsey Graham that’s I’d put toward the end.
Fox seems to want you to “log in to your cable provider” to see the debate on the internet. I think they need to learn that ever fewer folks HAVE cable…
I missed the start of the debate due to some rising bread that wanted attention Right Now! (but it will be worth it later ;-) Hopefully it will be rerun later on some local west coast channel or on the internet.
What I saw, though, was enough. If this is the bottom half of the line-up, the Republicans are in good shape.
Carly was not bashful about picking a cat-fight with Hillary. IMHO, if she doesn’t get the nod and one of “the boys” does, they need to pick her as V.P., just so she can attack Hillary without it being one of “the mean old boys” doing it.
More after the second debate. But at this point my opinion is that a couple of these folks could move up to the first tier with no problems.
