Why Chris Christie did enough to stay in the race and why John Kasich is is like Jon Huntsman. Why Jeb Bush is the Fredo of the Bush family and when Marco Rubio owned Jeb Bush in the debate. Is Ted Cruz the best long term bet to win the Republican Primary? Why Ted Cruz won by playing the attack the media game.
