Commentator Michael Gerson ("An exceptional candidate"), praises Mitt Romney's Denver debate performance, citing his tone of authority, not to mention vim and vigor. Well, Romney no doubt did shine in the performance aspect in the debate, sounding both knowledgeable and passionate.

Wednesday night, he partially embraced certain aspects of the ACA, saying that he plans to uphold the "pre-existing conditions" feature of the law, which is very popular. (Just days after telling us how the ER will suffice for the uninsured!)
