OPEN THREAD: The South Carolina GOP Debate

Tonight, the remaining GOP candidates will take the stage once more and debate on (hopefully) the issues that really matter. The debate comes mere hours after the news that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away at the age of 79 years. This will undoubtedly lead to questions about the nomination process, who they would pick to replace Scalia should the Senate hold its ground and hold no hearing whatsoever on the matter.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz seem poised to dominate the road ahead. Marco Rubio is struggling to make up the ground he lost. Jeb Bush and John Kasich are duking it out for the moderate vote. Ben Carson may actually be able to hear his name being called. It may very well be just another debate, with nothing new to offer. Or, it could be a surprising debate where Rubio bounces back, Kasich gets mean, or Carson is awake.

What do you think about the debate? Who do you think wins? Who do you think loses? This is an open thread. Use this power wisely.
