Did that happen? Apparently there’s a Halperin report card on it, so I guess so… There’s a Dem one this afternoon, the last one before the caucuses. (Yay!) Yesterday’s was bashed as boring, and as avoiding the most important headlines of the day (the NIE, Iraq). Today’s might be as well — but I’m told that the DMR debates are watched pretty closely within Iowa, and if they miss issues of national importance, the do focus on issues that Iowa caucus goers care about. How the candidates do is probably less important, for those trying to figure out Iowa, than the questions they’re asked. For more on that, you can read the transcript of the GOP debate here.
