    Another chance to show off their fine field of flaccid clown-car candidates. What a waste.

    Thank god this is it! We need to change the way our politicians run for office. This cra p has been going on since 2008 right after the last election.
    I don't know about the rest of you but not having watched one single "debate" (because I would never vote for any of them and cnn keeps us abreast of everyone who matters and "those" who don't) I can't wait for this to be over at least for now!

  3. Really?!?

    Wow I thought there were only 3 left. Who is this Ron Paul guy? Oh that must be the guy CNN,Fox and MSNBC have told us could NEVER win the GOP nomination. They should really include him more often.
