    Well, another 'debate' is in the books. I have no idea what the pundits say, but it would appear that Rubio was the clear winner from my point of view. Jeb! committed suicide by attacking him, unless that was the plan from the get go (conspiracy?). Trump did not hurt himself, but didn't score any points, either. Cristie presented well, but doesn't have a a chance. Fiorina was well spoken, but has trouble telling the truth. Carson? I just don't get it. Cruz is frightening, but would be a great designated driver, I guess.

    The Republicans are in trouble when the only person on the stage that made any sense was the raving madman, Kasich.

    Time to trim the field to maybe five viable candidates before they devour each other.

    And your analysis is because you are an interested Republican looking for the right one to vote for?

    I think a fully contested election is good.
    I'll be voting for the Libertarian candidate ... whoever that is.

    If I had to vote for one of them today it would be between Kasich and Paul. The others are living in a fantasy world.

    You know the funny thing is he's probably the one that leans the farthest to the center.

    Chances are good he won't make it to the general, and in my opinion both him and Jeb don't deserve to be on that stage.

    In response to the Rubio comment by the original poster, I wouldn't be surprised if the establishment wing of the Republican party is positioning themselves to prop up Rubio over Jeb given his falling stature in this race. Deep down they do not want a Ben Carson, or god forbid, a Donald Trump nominee. They want someone with political experience who has favors to dole out and principles to ignore.
