    Winners and Losers in Tonight's CNN/Salem Debate

    This was, in many respects, the best debate of the season. The moderators kept the focus for the largest part on the most meaningful conflict of the night – which was on the differences between Cruz and Rubio.

    Pick Your Favorite Lindsey Graham Face

    Look, Lindsey Graham is what he is by now. He’s a serious voice on national security, whether or not you agree with his neoconservative point of view. He’s also an irritatingly moderate figure on many other issues, especially given that he’s elected by deep-red South Carolina.
