    I didn't see all of it (tennis practive with daughter) but from I saw, I would go as follows:

    1. Herman Cain. Clear, concise, confident, articulate & direct. Downside? Could you possibly answer ONE question without 999?
    2. Romney. Pretty strong, very smooth and relaxed. Faltered a bit after the Reagan video but otherwise pretty good.
    3. Ron Paul! Wow! I didn't see him say anything so off-the-wall, that it will end up a punchline on late night tv! Unusual for him not to lose two points for every point he scores.
    4. Newt. I thought he did pretty well tonite.
    5. Santorum. A couple of big hiccups but otherwise reasonable.
    6. Some toenails I clipped while watching the show.
    7. Rick Perry. Really Rick? You come to a debate on the economy equipped with "I'll get back to you on that economy thing." ??? That and his other answers have me wondering if sounding stupid is a prerequisite for Texan politics. Of Course Kay Bailey Hutchison proves that wrong but then, Perry slaughtered her in the Gov Race...
    8. SpongeBob.
    9. Toe Fungus. I hate toe fungus.
    10. Stuff that's less likeable than toe fungus.
    11. Michele Bachmann. There's your late night tv punchlines. Seriously? Turn over 999 and you get 666, the number of the beast and Cain's plan? Obama said WHAT??? Lady, you do know that if you lie every hour of your life, people will eventually notice, right?

    So there's my rankings. I like Cain more every time I see him. The only candidate that would make my 2012 voting decision easy. How about your rankings?

    Actually, I thought Huntsman did himself the most good, in terms of giving himself a better chance of winning the nomination.

    Yeah--we've had a ton of threads on this already. BUT.

    Here's my pick as to who won tonight.

    1. Romney
    2. Gingrich
    3. Bachmann
    4. Cain--because he blew it on his 999 answer and Alan Greenspan being a good Fed chief--so he's going to drop down.
    5. Perry
    6. Santorum
    7. Paul
    8. Huntsman

    Bachmann? Seriously? You must have really liked her going in.

    No--I have never been a Bachmann supporter--but I think her answers--her clarity did very well tonight--so she walked away with more points.

    Wow! Well that shows how different perceptions can be! I thought she came off like a petty whackjob. I mean she did a good job of hitting Obama but that's shooting fish in a barrel. When it came to anything other than that well, I guess the Minnesotans like her...
