Tonight's Republican debate (sponsored by CNN) was essentially more of the same as we have seen before. I have been a fan of Jim Gilmore since I met him at CPAC back in March. (In case you are curious my favorite member of the Democratic field is John Edwards, but that's another post for another day.) Gilmore is not afraid to engage in the type of rational analysis and transparent decision making that is necessary in contemporary politics. If you caught the first Republican debate you will realize that he is eager to talk about the policies of his peers much more directly than the other nine candidates.
