    In a primary where debates have been the driving factor, few are as momentous as the one tonight.

    Capping the campaign’s most tumultuous day so far – with Rick Perry dropping out and endorsing Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum newly certified as the winner of the Iowa caucuses – the debate will test both men’s fortunes as well as the frontrunner, Mitt Romney.

    With only four candidates on the stage, the candidates will have far more time to make their cases to a national audience and will be able to further train their attacks on Romney, as polls show the race tightening between him and Gingrich in South Carolina. The debate airs at 8 p.m. on CNN.

    Since it's down to the four who actually want to be President, it should be interesting.

    If we're to take the media's word for it, Paul doesn't really want to be president.

    He worries me that he would run as an Independent. That would mean he wants Obama to have a second term...:confused:

    He's not running 3rd party. He didn't do it in 2008 why would he do it now? Why don't you people just listen to him? Even though the media is trying their hardest to make it look like he might, straight from his own mouth is "no".

    And it's disingenuous to assume that if for some reason he did, it's got something to do with Obama. You obviously don't know the man well enough if you think that.

    I have listened to him. That's why I don't expect him to run 3rd party. Would be nice if some of his more rabid supporters would listen to him though. Im glad you do.

    The man singlehandedly cured me of my apathy and i credit him greatly in my finally realizing it was time to grow up and care about something that mattered. I know him about as well as anyone who doesn't actually know him personally.
