Stacy McCain live blogged the debate from Charleston whilst I just followed and tweeted it as I watched the live stream on CNN.com.
As far as who won…Newt made a good showing. Santorum seemed hateful and vindictive. Romney sounded like Obama at times with all his stuttering on tough questions. But Ron Paul might have come out as the big winner because he wasn’t on the defensive like the other three candidates and was more articulate tonight than I’ve ever seen him. Wonder if he’s been practicing?
John King of CNN opened the debate by questioning Newt Gingrich on revelations by his second ex-wife. Newt deftly deflected the question by questioning King’s intelligence. The other candidates followed suit and slammed King for his faux paux. What a way to start the evening’s festivities, eh?
