Ron Paul Makes Name For Himself During Republican Debate
Gambling 911 | September 6, 2007
News agencies focused the spotlight on 2008 Presidential candidate Ron Paul, a rare moment indeed. Paul insisted the war in Iraq could risk bringing the Republican party down while all other candidates lashed back during a debate Wednesday evening in New Hampshire.
"Even if we lose elections, we should not lose our honor," shot back former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, "and that is more important to the Republican Party."
Some would argue that the real losses that matter are the losses of American lives in Iraq, though the audience applauded Huckabee.
The debate unfolded several days before Gen. David Petraeus is scheduled to deliver an assessment of President Bush's decision to commit 30,000 additional combat troops to give the Iraqi government time to develop.
Sen. John McCain, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Giuliani were among those who stressed their support for the war, at times even competing to show their commitment.
"The surge is apparently working," said Romney, referring to the increase in troops.
The 2008 Presidential odds continue to hold firm for all Republican candidates. Ron Paul and Mitt Romney were both listed with 8 to 1 odds. Rudy Giuliani was still the favorite with 3 to 1 odds.
