Thompson Stands Up to Moderator

MKH is right.

Kudos to Fred Thompson for standing up to the moderator regarding her request that they all raise their hands to show they believe climate change is real (Marc Ambinder has the transcript).  He said he would answer her question if she gave him a minute to have a real answer.  The only way the candidates are going to have serious debates is if they demand them; Fred Thompson did.

John McCain, in my estimation, looked very weak by quicky chiming in and making sure everyone knows he believes in global warming ...
