Which GOP candidate flies first class?

Ten GOP candidates squared off Tuesday night.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Seen on board the 6 a.m. US Airways flight 1159 from Manchester, New Hampshire to Washington: No less than five GOP presidential candidates: Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, former Virginia Gov. James Gilmore, and Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas.

Four of the five candidates sat in coach.

The lucky candidate who flew first class? Ron Paul.

The candidates were all flying back after facing off Tuesday night in a spirited debate in Manchester, New Hampshire, sponsored by CNN, WMUR-TV, and the New Hampshire Union Leader.

    What is wrong with that? 6 out of 8 Democratic candidates take private jets/chartered flights! And they call themselves Green?

    22 May 2007, C-Span covered a most educational speech to congress by Dr. Ron Paul. If Ron Paul did not use frequent-flyer miles for his first class ticket it is a shame. It is even more shameful to choose to publish such a trifle offense over the massive injustices to all Americans that this man, Ron Paul, is campaigning fearlessly against. History does repeat itself, so please research something worthy of consideration.
