We saw Harper at his best tonight. He is clearly at peak of his communication powers. Calm. Steady. On message.
Clearly the "winner" if you can have a winner in such things.
Michael Ignatieff stumbled a bit, though he had periods where he was on a roll. Key problem is inexperience. (I guess the Harvard debating club isn't that good.) He needs more training, more debates. Of course, this will likely be his last English debate.
Jack Layton was OK. Just basically on auto-pilot. Landed a few good shots against Ignatieff.
Duceppe was Duceppe.
And did anybody miss Elizabeth May?
