The debate was long. It was short on details probably because there were a lot of candidates on stage. No one flamed out. No one performed above expectations. There were a number of good moments, but none great. The most engaging perhaps were Ben Carson's closing comments. But I don't think anybody won, or lost. I think the quality of discussion and debate got better as the night went along. I don't think there was a clear cut winner.
While I respect the Fox moderators as news commentators, I think they were a bit too familial and not as professional as they could have been. Sadly, particularly Megyn Kelly looked more like she was hosting her show than being a moderator or panelist. She's talented and I hate to say it, but it was not her best night. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't as professional as I'd expected.
