Mike Huckabee was given more time in the waning moments of tonight's debate from the Reagan Library and he blew away his opponents.
The final question posed by moderator Anderson Cooper asked the four remaining GOP candidates if Ronald Reagan would have supported their candidacies.
Mitt Romney, never one for modesty, said Reagan would have supported him.
John McCain, never missing an opportunity to get in a dig at Romney, said Reagan would never have supported someone who changed their views at the drop of a hat.
Ron Paul said Reagan told him he supported a return to the gold standard, something Paul also supports.
Huckabee, the final candidate to speak, said it would be "presumptous" to say Reagan would have supported him, but Huckabee said he wanted to make it clear he supported Reagan, then closed the debate with a stirring recitation of Reagan's belief in the goodness and greatness of America.
For a candidate with little or mo cash on hand, Huckabee continues to know how to get the most out of his free media opportunities.
Now, I will sit back and listen to the pundits exclusively devote their discussion to the testy exchanges between McCain and Romney.
