The event was obviously staged to give the spotlight, and more time, to Romney, Giuliani and McCain. Blitzer went repeatedly to these three candidates and turned to Dr. Paul (and the gentleman from Colorado whose name I am unable to recall) only occasionally. Dr. Paul was given the chance to speak only 3 times in the first hour.
CNN is a big corporation and the last thing they want to do is to give Dr. Paul an opportunity to speak freely; so the physician's answers were kept to a minimum.
I thought Dr. Paul did well, but I wish he'd stop flailing his arms around. Doesn't he have a coach?
