There is a full verbatim transcript of the questions and answers from last night's debate now posted at MSNBC.com - here.
And it appears that Wednesday's post was a fairly accurate predictor of the questions that would be fielded - and even the evolution question was listed as a likely question.
The 2007 debate season is off to a great start for the Republicans (cough cough NOT cough).
SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - As Republican presidential contenders meet for their first debate on Thursday (live on MSNBC TV and MSNBC.com at 8 p.m. ET), social conservatives, a powerful force within the GOP, face the possibility that the party will nominate a candidate next year who isn't really one of them.
Arizona Sen. John McCain and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, front-runners in most national polls of Republicans, have clashed with conservatives in the past on abortion, immigration and gay rights.
And former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who only five years ago said he supported the "substance" of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade abortion decision, has altered his views to become what he now calls "firmly pro-life."
Watching this group of flopping GOPers was a riot. In my view not a single candidate on the stage last night has a real chance of winning this election based on what we've seen so far.
