Easily his best debate. Like Mike Huckabee, has finally learned to leverage the advantages of being a governor (as well as the advantages of being a naturally likable guy). Seemed to dominate many of the early topics with long, bold, energetic answers. More wonky (in a good way) than usual, but a little less optimistic too. Had plenty of time to talk, but didn't fully seize the moment.
