Pretty good debate, but, Mitt Romney came out on top. I have begun to take a 2nd look at him, when it comes to the economy, he is very impressive, Still a Rudy fan, but, Romney is interesting as well.

Rudi talks about the NY Times endorsement
[youtubetp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZXTKzXSPR4[/youtubeAnother one liner from Huckabee.
[youtubetp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LDPNzBPY4o[/youtubeMitt Romney is asked whether the war in Iraq was worth the sacrifice and effort.
[youtubetp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2b_HYPgDj0[/youtubeHuckabee has some interesting ideas....

All 5 of these guys make sense. I think McCain is the weakest. However, the problem with these five guys, is that there are five of them. It's too close to the election to still have 5 guys fighting for the spot, and they end p spending too much time fighting and bickering among each other since they have more "internal enemies", than fighting the real issues against the Dems.

I need to add a few more comments.

- Romney doesn't have enough ideas. He just seems to point out what's wrong, but I don't hear solutions. I just don't buy it.

- Can Ron Paul get a suit that fits him?

- McCain still gives me that extremist feel, like anything he takes on will go too far.

- Huckabee looks way too much like Kevin Spacey.

- Rudy has a great, balanced set of solutions and his head is in the right place. I just don't think he knows how he'll apply it all. He does not have enough experience in Washington to pick a good cabinet, so I don't think he'd do well.

- Huckabee is my favorite on the GOP side now. Likable with his sense of humor, but smart with ideas for actual solutions it seems.

- I love watching debates, and I've never seen Republicans kiss the lower and middle class' butt so much. I think it's a genuine change in the GOP, that they realize that they need ot fix the heart of the nation...it's working people. I don't thin it's just pre-election rhetoric.

I might be a bit far to the right wing for most but I am actually likeing McCain the most supriseingly. I also like the Huck and Romney is out no matter what. He is shady or at least some of the people who work for him are. To me that does not bode well for him because it reflects the rest as far as I am concerned.

Here is another reason not to vote for Obama:

Attorney General Edwards?

Friday, January 25, 2008
Advertisment

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Illinois Democrats close to Sen. Barack Obama are quietly passing the word that John Edwards will be named attorney general in an Obama administration.

Installation at the Justice Department of multimillionaire trial lawyer Edwards would please not only the union leaders supporting him for president but organized labor in general. The unions relish the prospect of an unequivocal labor partisan as the nation's top legal officer.
