    Not including the opinion of Ron Paul in this list is either a unprofessional oversight or pure election rigging. I don't even live in the U.S. but your foreign policies impact me and Ron Paul wants to leave Iraq (as do most Australians). It is obvious that Ron Paul has had a major impact on voters who do get to hear him speak. He is obviously a popular and unique candidate judging by the record-breaking amounts of public donations he has raised. If nothing else he is newsworthy and entertaining. So why do Fox (and now CNN) act like he doesn't exist? Why won't they publish his opinions in full? Why is the media afraid to represent the candidates equally? Why is the media deciding the next president instead of the people?

    Ron Paul says he'll give the U.S. a free market and no regulation. That means CNN and FOX can grow without government interference in media ownership. These media empires should be happy! If they're going to be biased, why not towards Ron Paul? I don't understand what is going on but it smells like fish and it's starting to stink!

    There is only one candidate that voted against the Iraq war. There is only one candidate that voted against the Patriot Act. There is only one candidate who will put an end to our involvement in NAFTA and the WTO and bring jobs back to the American people. There is only one candidate who believes in the Constitutional rights of the people, and a government of the people by the people, not for big business by big business. There is only one candidate who is not owned by big business and will not accept money from them. There is only one candidate who wants medical insurance for all Americans. And that one candidate is Dennis Kucinich and these are the real reasons he was not invited to the New Hampshire debates and given very little time to speak in the debates he has been in. He is the only candidate that is truly for the people and not big business. Vote Dennis Kucinich and return this nation to the greatness it once was. Dennis all the way!

    CNN needs to cover ALL of the candidates, not just the front runners. Google "Ron Paul" and read about a candidate that would sweep the elections if he received the amount of media coverage that Obama or Romney get. Wake up America, the media is very very biased.

    Ignoring Ron Paul's campaign will not make it conveniently go away. His views must seriously threaten the "free and unbiased" bureaucratic press or his views wouldn't be so uniformly silenced. It is obviously not in the media's best economic interest to allow the american public to be influenced by Dr. Ron Paul. Just how far will the news demogogues go to subvert the electorial process by promoting only candidates they deem worthy of coverage? Perhaps we should just do away with free elections and let the press appoint the next president. They, like the federal government, seem to know what is best for us humble american citizens. Who needs to hear about adhering to Constitutional rights and freedoms?

    ok... so McCain always seems like he is going to slump over and die,
    Romney seems to have the right energy to take this position

    Where is Ron Paul?

    It is amazing how during the actual ticker I have to CTRL+F Ron Paul to find any mention of him. However most of the comments left are about Ron Paul.

    CNN and Fox, do you not see what most of your internet viewers want?

    Ron Paul, Fix America!

    I agree with Will in VA. Maybe the reason they haven't posted any Ron Paul clips is that there are more Ron Paul clips on youtube.com than probably all the other candidates combined!

    I want real change–respect for the Constitution and respect for individual people. I'm voting for Ron Paul today in NH.

    Big media think they have the right to set the terms of political debate in this country. But nothing can stop our growing coalition for peace, prosperity and freedom!

    Join me and the many thousands of others who are voting for Ron Paul in 2008!

    Ron Paul raises the level of debate in this election. He was the candidate who introduced the much-needed issue of "blowback" to the debate.

    If you really are an independent, and are tired of the same old superficial silliness that passes for "debate"–check out Ron Paul on google and youtube. Ron Paul knows the issues and talks specifically about them. And he ties them all together with real, consistent principle.

    First of all, no candidate should be excluded. America was built on bold ideas and the electorate should hear as many as possible.

    Second, all of the candidates are liars as they speak of what they will do as President, including Ron Paul. He should know better since, according to the Constitution, the Executive has NO POWER to enact these things; that's Congress's responsibility. He can approve or veto and even suggest, but that's it.

    Third, I'm Mormon and I WON'T vote for Romney. The LDS believe the Constitution to be as sacred as Scripture, and Romney only knows how to use it when it's convenient, such as blantantly opposing gun rights (It's a collective right? Then is Free Speech a collective right, too? How about only being able to worship collectively? Or collectively quartering in our homes? Get real and read the Constitution!) as Governor and then being an avid gun owner when he needed to break out of his Blue image.

    Fourth, we need to be actually attending our Civics classes and participating and learning. The Congress voted for War. They're the only ones who can stop the war, too, via a treaty. They KNEW that the Bush Admin intended to topple the then current Iraqi (and Afghani) government(s), so there'd be no legitimate government with which to sign said treaty.

    So, are they all stupid and incompetent? If so, they shouldn't have their jobs. If not, then they are equally complicit and derelict in their duties and equally deserving of being impeached/removed from office. Or even more justified, tried for treason for gross unConstitutional violation of their oath of office.

    On the subject of illegal immagration many of the canidates have stated they should go back to their country and get at the back of the line. I agree that what they did was against the law but in reality what would the cost be to forcefully send them back? Also, if they are entitled to the our legal system how long could that delay the process of sending them back?

    Please tell these Ballot Bowl reporters to stop comparing registered hispanic voters in Las Vegas and whether having spanish language in the Obama and Clinton camps as a negative to South Carolina's Illegal Immigration issue's…and whether or not it will hurt Obama and Clinton in South Carolina.
    Can this get anymore rediculous?

    Where is your coverage of John Edwards or Ron Paul? Why so much coverage on Rudy Giuliani when had such poor showings in the primaries so far? This is not just a contest between Hillary and Obama, which by the way would not change much in Washington.
