WASHINGTON (CNN) - Analyst and Democratic strategist Paul Begala has planted the victory flag in former New York city Mayor Rudy Giuliani's camp.
While conceding that Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, knew the most about the issues, he also felt former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's performance was the most surprising of the night.
Most disappointing? Begala thought former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson's debate performance left something to be desired.
Begala's favorite line? That came from Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colorado, who said, "I'd tell George W. Bush never to darken the door of the White House."
