Tonight will be the second round of the GOP debate. This one will be hosted by FOX, with Brit Hume serving as moderator. I would expect to see a bit more organized debate than Chris Matthews’ efforts two weeks ago. I am also looking forward to not being treated to the insipid “online” questions from Politico.com.
With a field of ten there are still too many, but hopefully tonight the herd will be thinned out. There are simply some candidates who may have a right to run, but are merely diversions.
Notably, the two who aren’t there may draw more attention than the ten who are there. Fred Thompson and Newt Gringrich will not be in the fray as they have not yet announced. We’ll be following the debate with interest and hope to find some snap polls – scientific ones – about who did the best. Heck, that post I had from Survey USA was GOOD for traffic!
