Trump lost the stage when he whined about the only woman. Asking why does Carly always interrupt. Carly won that contretemps. Every man was interjecting as well. Jeb! must have taken a blue pill. His punctuation point showed a little life. Don’t get Rubio. No gravitas. He remains the darling of the NeoCons and Republican establishment. Cruz is just creepy. Kasich a bit too tart. Rand Paul ornery. Ben Carson is not smart. Surgeons are not necessarily brilliant outside of the operating room. Moderators excellent. Professional.
Winner? Ninth guy. Chris Christie. First debate. He took on Hillary and won the night. Sidewired. Lindsey Graham. A little wacky. But, funny.
