Ronald Reagan cast a long shadow over Wednesday night's debate. (Photo Credit: AP)
That was a good answer on Reagan’s legacy – he used it to introduce a very sly and effective reminder of Romney’s shifting positions.

Wow you are biased. Why wouldn't they put someone on a blog who doesn't have an agenda.
WHO CARES WHAT Ronald reagan has to say?!? This election should focus on the people and who they believe will be best in this election. Reagan is dead lets not ponder over what his opinion would’ve been and lets focus on the numerous domestic problems we have.
didnt you feel like this was a cheap shot?
Ya we want hot head McCain with his hand real close to the missile button.
MCCAIN REMINDS OF BILL CLINTON IN A BAD MOOD
These two candidates really hate each other, and it showed throughout the debate. This cannot be overlooked
Dirty trick by the man who shouldn't claim to have ever heard Reagan! He has never at least in the last decade voted as if he was in the 'Reagan camp'!
I disagree, that was a cheap shot and totally uncalled for considering the question. The question was would Reagan endorse you and why, not why wouldn't he endorse the others.
Again, why the use of the weasel word sly? You're supposed to be somewhat impartial, you know.
Huckabee and McCain gained. The others lost.
Funny thing though I can still remember the Bush Campaign making the same exact claim about McCain 8 years ago...
McCain spoke of Reagan's unshifting Conservative principles. Too bad McCain doesn't have Conservative principles!!!!!
Limiting free speech
Not really a Conservative, is he?
i look forward to seeing the amount of face time each candidate had, so that maybe someone will try to shift that complete imbalance. to blame the questioners would be to not give enough credit to romney and mccain blowing hot air for way longer than what i would have thought was their alloted time.
Bill: like McCain hasn't shifted his positions on immigration and taxes, two huge issues. Common Bill, tell the truth.
How about the war that Reagan started that we are still fighting and losing....The war on drugs. Silly that the debate was about Reagan and his policies and not one question about the war on drugs.
Overall, the debate showed how awful and petty McCain is. Hope the country is paying some attention.
Here's a new ticker: President Reagan was the second worst President of the United States- other than his Vice President's son.
I guess if you call immature attempts at trying to cut down someone who is clearly the best candidate –
Mc Cain is a disgrace, he gonna bankrupt this country
Complete cheap shot by McCain.
Who's this Bill Schneider guy making all these ridiculous comments. Bring in someone without a transparent self-serving agenda.
I agree with Jason. Seems to me McCain's going negative at this point is VERY risky. Given the momentum he seems to have right now, I'd be on the high road and focusing up, up, up at this point ...
ITS CLEAR RON PAUL WON THIS DEBATE.
Huckabee clearly gave the best answer on the Reagan legacy. You know, if people actually voted their heart and weren't so easily swayed by popular opinion and worthless polling data, Huckabee could win this thing. Just like Harry Truman did in 1948. He didn't stand a chance but people voted for him anyway because they liked him.
