Republicans busy tonight, too

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidates didn't stay home Monday night to pick up tips for their CNN/YouTube debate in September.

As Democratic candidates took the stage in Charleston, South Carolina, four GOP candidates (or expected candidates) were on the trail at events of their own.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani delivered a speech at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel, Senator John McCain made an economic address in Benton Harbor, Michigan, former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson attended a private fund-raiser in Birmingham, Alabama, and former Arkansas Governor Mke Huckabee was wrapping up an appearance in Davenport, Iowa.

Maybe they have TiVos?

    umm yeah...CNN appears to be unaware that FRED THOMPSON HASN'T EVEN DECLARED CANDIDACY! How can you call him a "candidate" if he's not even running yet?!
