Good for Newsweek political blogger Andrew Romano, who--commenting on the debate--notes that "Ron Paul was the only one who sounded like a person instead of a politician--no small feat for a presidential candidate."
Mr. Romano also writes: "My favorite moment of the night? When Paul tsk-tsked Romney and McCain for sniping over Iraq strategy--an area where their positions are largely indistinguishable. 'I find it rather silly, because they're arguing technicalities of a policy they both agree with,' he said. 'They agreed with going in; they agreed for staying, agreed for staying how many years? And these are technicalities. We should be debating foreign policy.' The other candidates--not to mention reporters--often dismiss the Good Doctor, but as the field narrows, I have to say: it's fun to watch him give them a hard time. He was certainly talking sense tonight." (And thanks to Jim Waddell.)
