The GOP YouTube Debate

Download Audio
Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson and Mike Huckabee tried, in last night's YouTube debate, to break out of the Republican pack.

They got aggressive, especially on immigration, but also on the economy, on foreign policy, on taxes and on trade. Romney played defense. Huckabee looked like a contender.

But with no clear frontrunner, and with Iowa and New Hampshire just around the bend, this GOP race is as hot as ever.
