This is going to be interesting to watch.
The front runners of the debate will be Mitt Romney and Ron Paul the entire way. These two guys should have no problem holding their ground on the
issues. On the other hand, Newt Gingrich is going to come out of this limping like a wounded animal -- he doesn't stand a chance. I've no doubt
he'll get a couple jabs in here and there, but he won't be able to overcome his creditability issues.
Then there's the wild card -- Michele Bachmann. Normally this would be the title that Ron Paul holds, however he has worked his way into the American
mindset to such an extent that people aren't scratching their heads and wondering, "Ron who?" Anyway, Bachmann is everything that Sarah Palin is
not: experienced, articulate and intelligent. She'll be able to hold her own during the debate without having to struggle with talking points or
deflect her own inadequacies by claiming the MSM is picking on her.
The others rounding out the group: Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum and Herman Cain don't have the staying power needed to win the GOP nomination. I
imagine they'll be among the first to drop out of the race.
