WASHINGTON (CNN) - CNN's pipeline is picking up some movement in the democratic field. Republican Mike Murphy remarked that Senator Edwards is having a "strong second half performance." Democrat Arianna Huffington thinks he's the most "well briefed" candidate on the stage and is lucky to avoid any hair questions so far. Murphy thinks the "well polished answers are a product of a lot of time off." Both agree that Senator Clinton has some competition if she is to come away with the title of 'debate winner.'
