First GOP Presidential Candidates Debate

Good news: All 10 announced candidates got to debate, From Guliani, McCain, Huckabee, and Romney, to Rep Ron Paul and Rep Tom Tancredo. Bad news: Chris Matthews, former Democrat staffer and current annoying media person, got to moderate. Some live-blogging reaction from powerline, Heading Right, and The Corner at NRO.

Update: I was impressed by the rapid-fire debate on several points. Well done to the candidates who didn't take bait to go after other candidates. I thought Romney, Huckabee and Hunter did best. Brownback and Gilmore better than I expected. Guliani not so good. Tancredo not-quite-ready. I came away thinking we have a pretty good field, and that Romney/Hunter might make a good ticket.
