Politico's analysis, Noonan analysis

The Politico's informal read of the consensus order of finish for last night's GOP Presidential Candidates Debate in the Air Force One Pavilion of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library:

1) Mitt Romney
2) John McCain
3) Rudy Giuliani
4) Mike Huckabee
5) Duncan Hunter
6) Ron Paul
7) Sam Brownback
8) Jim Gilmore
9) Tommy Thompson
10) Tom Tancredo

In other words, Mitt won!

Then, Peggy Noonan had this to say:

If we view the proceedings in vulgar and reductive Who Won, Who Lost terms, and let's, Mitt Romney won, Rudy Giuliani lost, and John McCain is still in. The moderator, Chris Matthews, seemed to think he was on "Hardball" and had to keep the pups, punks and rubes--that would be the candidates--in line. He cut them off--"Congressman, that's time!"--and occasionally hectored. One of the stars was the buzzing clock. It interrupted all thought.
