Echo Magazine;12/13/2007, Vol. 19 Issue 7, p48
The author discusses the Cable New Network (CNN)-YouTube Republican debate during the 2008 U.S. presidential campaigns. The author believes Republicans deflected a question by retired Brigadier General Keith Kerr concerning military service by gay women and men. The author suggests Republicans diverted attention away from the issue by alleging that Kerr was a plant by 2008 U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Also discussed is the Republican stance toward taxes, education, and terrorism.
