As we prepare for the GOP debate this evening, let's take a moment.
First - to reflect that McCain's "Statler" will be sadly lacking Fred Thompson's "Waldorf" this evening...Sad.
But second, to look at the dynamics.
Republicans are running short on cash -- that creates a huge opportunity for Mitt Romney, who's on track to put more of his own money into the race that either Ross Perot or Steve Forbes.
Then there's Rudy, who has bet it all on the Sunshine State.
A new Miami Herald poll has him slipping into third place.
What do you think?
