The candidates were asked whether unions are a good or a bad thing for America.
All of them generally agreed -- unions have done much good but at times were used by Democrats for political gains . For our money, Mitt Romney gave the best answer.
"There are some good ones and some not so good," Romney said, before naming the Carpenters as one of the "good" unions. As for the bad ones, Romney joked he wasn't planning to name them. It seemed like a real joke -- Romney himself seemed somewhat surprised that he had made it -- and a nice moment for a candidate.
Romney must always be wary that he comes across as too robotic in these sorts of forums. His union answer helped him dispel that concern a bit.
