I had the impression that last night was going to be the better debate night but I personally do not think it went that way. In fact, there are only three names I'm interested in hearing more from after last night, versus the five names I'm interested in from the first night.
With over 20 candidates in the race, there's an awful lot of noise right now. I really enjoy watching the debates to understand how their opinions differ. But in a field this wide, this early in the race, the debate serves as a different sort of sieve for me. I'm looking for the candidate least likely to be turned into a caricature.
