ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (CNN) - A few quick observations - the only time Sen. Hillary Clinton has been mentioned is in the pre-produced spots that the campaigns submitted to CNN and YouTube. No one has mentioned her on stage. Is anyone else surprised by that?
Also, is it just me or did there not use to be so much booing at presidential debates?
And no, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is indeed action star Chuck Norris sitting in the audience. He is supporting former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

All the canidates suck, people will boo them. Suprise suprise
I support Huckabee, He is the only one that can be trusted. Obviously from his responses, he is quick on his feet.
The booing is because we are tired of the ring around the rosy answers. Say what you mean, mean what you say. If you truly believe what you are saying is true, stick by it no matter what. But because ALL the candidates, Repulicans and Democrats are so caught up on media coverage and watching what they say, the public just want some straight talk. It may be controversial but hey, its true. Just like a true friend will tell you the truth, a true leader will tell the truth.
Norris supporting Huckabee is no different than Oprah supporting Obama or any hollywood stars supporting any candidates they are people too
hilary is the gop punching bag...any democrat in their right senses won't nominate her.
people booed because they are tired of all the Republicans on stage that are liberals when it comes to guns, abortion, and other issues
Clearly saw Chuck Norris, but was my friend RUSH in the audience too ?
I wondered myself about the booing. But, it engendered another question...where did CNN get the audience?
What's with all the booing? Democrats – they show no respect for the presidency or each other.
These Republican candidates deserved MORE 'Boo-ing' because of their adherence to the abhorrent Bush edicts that they supported. More evil scum bags that would follow in the footsteps of the WORST. PRESIDENT. EVER!
Youare only suprised by no one mentioning Hillary because no one besides the media are obsessed with her, other than those who dilike her because her well documented trail of corruption.
Yep because they truly deserved to be boo'd.
Mitt the king of all flip-floppers.
Rudy the con-artist with sidekick Kerik going to jail soon
Tancredo the racist xenophobe against ALL immigration
and a bunch of other frauds.
The one candidate that wants real change for party is Ron Paul, though obviously Anderson and company don't take him seriously a bit
Because it's all designed by the campaigns now.
Notice how some cheer to outlast the boos?
It's all staged. I think the voters can decipher the "true" boos from the "false" cheers.
People boo Ron Paul, because they dont want to listen to what he has to say! He is right on every issue, and throws FACTS out. he doesn't say, "We are winning" and leave it at that. He tells why we need to leave the country we have occupied, and how it would fix the current condition of the United States (which is pretty poor at the moment).
It is the narrow minded neo-conservatives that refuse to admit they were wrong!
the booing is a direct result of the questions being molded to entise a unpopular response from the audience !! I'm booing right now at Cnn for asking why it seems theres so much more booing at the debates
... and who is the adult here? Booing is just a lazy excuse for not thinking. Cheer for what you agree with and vote for the candidate of your choice.
Third graders are taught the booing is not acceptable. Would the grown-ups would do as well.
"No one mentioned her (Hillary) on stage"? The CNN's other news item on top shows Huckabee said he would send Clinton to mars in his space program.
