I'm Getting Sick of Debates
Is it only January? We watched last night's debate and flipped back and forth to The Donald's Rally.
Marco Rubio had a terrific debate. The more I see of him, the more I like him, notwithstanding his Gang of Eight history.
This was probably Rand Paul's best debate. He looked healthy and relaxed; hopefully his neck issues have resolved. We saw more of the humor and warmth that those of us in Kentucky expect but had been missing from his earlier debates.
With regards to the Donald's rally, I was not bothered by Trump skipping the Fox Debate. He makes his own rules; that's what people like about him. His rally did seem a little like the Jerry Lewis Telathon.
How fascinating that Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee joined it. That was really astute for them to attend and for Trump to invite him. This cannot help but strengthen Trump with evangelicals.
As for Santorum and Huckabee, they know it's over. But they have issues that they care deeply about and need to promote their personal brand. Either of these gentlemen would be big assets in a cabinet.
