Too Little, Too Late?

Issue

The GOP candidates went all out to appear presidential in their 12th GOP debate speaking in firm but level tones.

The debate once again lacked specifics from all the candidates. This contest before Tuesday's polling at least did not degenerate into the mudslinging of past debates, when the candidates insulted and talked over one another.

Meanwhile, another former foe of The Donald, retired surgeon Ben Carson is endorsing Trump for president. This development may strengthen the front-runner’s support among blacks, conservatives and evangelicals.

GOP final 4 tone down rhetoric, if not their differences http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/89ae8247abe8493fae24405546e9a1aa/Article...

Trump endorsements

Carson has quite the devoted fanbase. This may be a bigger endorsement than I orignally reallized. Trump's endorsements keep rolling in, just yesterday he was endorsed by the influential Pastor, Moe Lestor.
