S.C. Republican Debate / Second Round

McCain on immigration . . . how does he manage to sound sanctimonious and "I-know-best" on this and really, on so much else? I think he thinks he's showing leadership, but it just comes off as condescension.

Harsh hit from Romney - McCain/Kennedy could do for immigration what McCain/Feingold did for politics. Strong blow -- and audience liked it. McCain's response -- that he's not a flip-flopper -- not that great; look at his conversion to tax cuts. And his attack on Romney hardly helped him develop the "above-the-fray" image he needs to recapture his frontrunner/leader status.
