Most Oppose Embryonic Stem Cell Research

All ten candidates were asked for a "yes" or "no" answer on support for embryonic stem cell research -- a question complicated by the fact that former First Lady Nancy Reagan, a strong stem-cell research advocate, was in the audience.

McCain and Giuliani were the only ones who said they would support embyronic stem cell research although they both hedged their answers by saying that was true only as long as cells weren't being created for the express purpose of destroying them.

Romney didn't give a direct answer, repeatedly emphasizing his support for alternative nuclear transfer. "I will not create new embryos through cloning or embryo farming," Romney said.

This party hasn't had an original idea in 50 years. Most of the candidates still think June Cleaver is the typical house wife. Why does the GOP need to invent villians to scare the public into voting for their party?

McCain is a joke. I hope the GOP nominates him because he's a sure loser in the general election.

The 10 dwarfs! The only person they dwarf is dubbyah. What a bunch of empty suits. Fearmongers not worthy of consideration. I'm sure Ronald Reagan turned over in his grave. Comical if they weren't so scary as fearmongers. Pitiful.
