For those that couldn't or wouldn't watch the Republican debate, here's how they did in a nutshell.
John McCain B
Rudy Guiliani C- (that's being generous)
Mitt Romney A-
Tom Tancredo, Ron Paul, Tommy Thompson, Jim Gilmore, Duncan Hunter etc, who cares.
Ed Morrissey comments: * What about Fred? -- Fred helped himself tremendously by staying out of this debate. His absence will make GOP hearts grow much fonder, much faster. At this rate, if Fred stays out of these debates until the primary season begins, he might be the consensus nominee.
