Perry, Romney, Cain, and Gingrich did well. But I can’t help being most impressed by Newt Gingrich’s clarity, his command of and creativity addressing domestic and international policy issues strategically and sensibly. Most importantly, our country can’t survive another four years of Obama and many of the people he’s brought with him into our government. The people in the debate tonight are exemplars of the better leadership that’s available to us.
