    you can look through old diaries/stories at DebateScoop -- McCain did quite well in the primaries.

    That said, the competition in the GOP debates was MUCH weaker than on the Dem side. Kind of like the early days of the NBA vsa. the ABA or AFL vs. NFL.

    The GOP had nobody of the debating caliber of Edwards, Clinton, Biden, and Dodd. Even Kucinich was better than the GOP role players.

    The Dems played the debate game at a whole 'nother level.

      performed best in the GOP primary debates and it is no coincidence they were the last two standing.

      The others gave people too many opportunities and reasons to take them off the list.

      Seems strange to say today, but McCain came out of the GOP debates looking like one of the two reasonably stable candidates from their party.
