Mitt Romney's decisive victory over President Obama in tonight's debate will have a thousand fathers, including Senator Rob Portman, who prepped him for the showdown with the President.
But how about a nod to the man who predicted tonight's outcome well over a month ago, in Tampa, with a speech and prop that were widely derided at the time by the chattering class. We refer, of course, to Clint Eastwood and that famous empty chair. Well, that empty chair (and empty brain at the other end) were on full display in Denver tonight.
Kudos, Mr. Eastwood. Ahead of the curve--as usual.
Also, a tip of the hat to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who predicted a "game changing" performance from Mitt Romney tonight. As Jim Geraghty of NRO said on Twitter, "I'd like to see his picks in the NFL pool this week."
