Question on my mind is will Bachmann go after Romney or let others. She has to prove she is not a stalkinghorse for Mittens to me.

I hope Palin and West are just waiting it out;
let these guys beat each other up first.

Not that Bachman and Cain wouldn’t get my vote,
but the above are my top picks.

This is all about who can out-Reagan and out-God the other.

I’m betting on Bachmann for the God-pandering, with Santorum a close second, and Pawlenty for the Reagan-pandering, again with Santorum in second.

Of the candidates on your list that are "in" or "near-in" and with any chance at all, I would vote for (alphabetically) Bachmann, Cain, Palin, Pawlenty, Perry, or Santorum.

Conversely, I would not vote for (in the primary, at least) Gingrich, Huntsman, Johnson, Paul, or Romney. (I'm not even bothering to mention the rest.)

Since it’s on CNN and it’s a GOP debate, you know there’s going to be a question on “Do you believe in evolution?” or “Should evolution be taught in schools?” in order to make the candidates look “intolerant”.

I hope Cain and Bachman take it to the others...especially Romney Schmomney. I don't remember who it was, but I heard someone coin the phrase Obomney-Care. I hope someone uses it tonight.

All candidates should utterly disregard any question they are asked and focus soley on attacking Obama. It’s just going to be a bunch of gotcha questions anyhow.

I KNEW they’d put Cain and Bachmann on the ends. The media is pushing Newt and Romney down our throats, so they get the middle spots.

The goal should be to take out Romney. The MSM wants this RINO to be the nominee in the worst way.
