Introduction

Hello and welcome. We have a lot to talk about today: Jon Hunstman, Rick Perry, an Obama impersonator and much more.

Issues vs. Personality follow-up

[Not a Faceoff -- but a chance to defend yourself]: Oh come on -- "Coke vs. Pepsi" is not insight. No one votes for a candidate based on soda preference.
