Washington Post better wake up and smell Ron Paul. We don't care about Rudy Mcromney, or thompson/ginrich. Anyone that votes republican & decides Anti-War is the right approach will in fact vote for Ron Paul.

He is not as much of a longshot as he was few months ago. It's time the press starts giving him the recognition he deserves.

Agreed, Ron Paul is the candidate for me. Seems to be the only politician in the U.S. that is doing what they all swore an oath to do, uphold the constitution period.

Did you forget Ron Paul was part of the debate or did you just want to avoid the only candidate who speaks the truth?

Wake up people!!! Your "frontrunners" are all the same basic cookie-cutter candidate! If you want real change jump on the Ron Paul bandwagon. He is the only one with real grassroots support. Sure, the other guys have support, but Ron Paul supporters actually BELIEVE in the message of freedom and prosperity that he espouses and has worked for his whole life.

to me there was no doubt as to who won the debate, Ron Paul. Fundementalists out there in both parties need to wake up and smell the freedom evaporating as quick as global warming is engulfing us as a nation. Ron is trying to give us a gift that we as Americans may not recognize or actually be able to comprehend "Freedom" in the purest sense. But have no fear the stupidity of Americans to elect idiots will probably prevail and the political spin from major news networks to cover up this fine gentleman who speaks truth through conviction will probably be successful. Watching you idiots in the most uneducatable way is quite amusing though for when I see you elect a scourge worse than herpes "Giuliani" or possibly even worse hillary who is like getting a diagnosis of aids shall be deemed entertaing from the other side of the canadien border, which is where I am making my plans to go.

ILULISSAT, Greenland (Reuters) -- Atop Greenland's Suicide Cliff, from where old Inuit women used to hurl themselves when they felt they had become a burden to their community, a crack and a thud like thunder pierce the air.

"We don't have thunder here. But I know it from movies," says Ilulissat nurse Vilhelmina Nathanielsen, who hiked with us through the melting snow. "It's the ice cracking inside the icebergs. If we're lucky we might see one break apart."

As politicians squabble over how to act on climate change, Greenland's ice cap is melting, and faster than scientists had thought possible.

A new island in East Greenland is a clear sign of how the place is changing. It was dubbed Warming Island by American explorer Dennis Schmitt when he discovered in 2005 that it had emerged from under the retreating ice.

If the ice cap melted entirely, oceans would rise by 23 feet, flooding New York and London, and drowning island nations like the Maldives.

Global warming, which climate experts blame mainly on human use of fossil fuels, is heating the Arctic faster than anywhere else on Earth.

"When I was a child, I remember hunters dog-sledding 50 miles on ice across the bay to Disko Island in the winter," said Judithe Therkildsen, a retiree from Aasiaat, a town south of Ilulissat on Disko Bay.

"That hasn't happened in a long time."

Greenland, the world's largest island, is mostly covered by an ice cap of about 624,000 cubic miles that accounts for a 10th of all the fresh water in the world.

Over the last 30 years, its melt zone has expanded by 30 percent.

"Some people are scared to discover the process is running faster than the models," said Konrad Steffen, a glaciologist at University of Colorado at Boulder and a Greenland expert who serves on a U.S. government advisory committee on abrupt climate change.

Such a shame there was not a tar pit nearby, into which the debater could have crawled. The GOP nneds a younger, Obama-like figure to make it more appealing

Rudy won because he was mildly funny and had no major gaffes. (F) Thompson won for the grass-is-greener factor. McCain still doesn't get it, and the more I see him the more I think he's running for Vice (especially the gravitas factor if Rudy gets it).

Balz assertion that all of the candidates agree on Iran and Iraq does a disservice to the Ron Paul campaign, the American people, and the anti-war voice in the Republican party.

There is a choice in the GOP primaries - more of the same from 9 candidates or a new path from Rep. Ron Paul. Failing to draw this distinction is lazy and incomplete reporting, not an oversight.

Who won? Either Fred Thompson, Newt Gingrich or the Democrats. Otherwise this gang in the not ready for primetime players.

I can tell you who lost the debate -- the American people.

Christ, what a pathetic bunch of dittohead losers. P.T. Barnum would have loved it.
