Miami: Republicans at Univision Spanish Channel Debate
Other than Ron Paul getting extra loud boos, the debate moved right along with basically short answers from the candidates. Of course, the main topic was illegal aliens, that being the first questions to be ask.
Back to Ron Paul getting booed badly, it involved his answer about Cuba and saying he would lift the embargo. During this exchange, the Thompson campaign emailed reporters reminding them of Huckabee and his lenient position on the embargo. Campaign Carl has the more. Via Miami Herald
Huckabee is certain to face questions about the embargo at a Monday morning press conference in Miami, where he is expecting an endorsement from Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio, one of the most prominent Cuban-American Republicans in the state.I feel Rudy will win in Florida.
Caught off guard, Huckabee's campaign said two hours after the debate that he had since changed his position on the embargo after consulting with Cuban-American leaders. ''He's committed to vetoing any legislation that lifts sanctions on Cuba,'' said Huckabee spokeswoman Alice Stewart.

Obama Preaches To Masses in S. Carolina with Oprah
Are we going to see more of this with the Dems playing the religious card? If it is working for Mike Huckabee, surging through the polls, (if that is the reason) the "O" team seem to have pandered to the South Carolinian southern voter today with rhetoric that was straight from Sunday school.
On the second day of Oprah Winfrey campaigning with Democrat presidential candidate, Barack Obama, she was welcomed to a massive crowd, close to half of the 80,000-seat stadium.
The speeches from yesterday in Iowa changed a little for this big Sunday event, that was scheduled for after church. The Politico has more:
Obama and Winfrey touched on many of the same themes of change that they had dwelt on in Iowa Saturday. But Sunday's gathering was sprinkled with women in the hats they'd worn to church, and had a distinctly Christian feel.Surely people can see through this? How is Hillary going to top this revival?
"I give all praise and honor to God," Obama began. "Look at the day the Lord has made."
Obama's wife, Michelle, opened the rally with a description of her husband that could, at moments, have been a description of Jesus Christ.
"We need a leader who's going to touch our souls. Who's going to make us feel differently about one another. Who's going to remind us that we are one another’s keepers. That we are only as strong as the weakest among us," she said, echoing biblical passages.
Oprah has done many amazing things, that I admire, but her campaigning means nothing to me or any one else endorsing a candidate for president, for that matter and most especially a Democrat.

Gordon Bloyer's Call to Rush Limbaugh, YouTuber at the CNN Debate
The transcript to Rush Limbaugh show. A little excerpt here
So we hear it again, now from someone there at the debate, who was flown in by CNN, that says CNN knew General Kerr including Anderson Cooper, that acted stunned at the post debate discussion after the show, when it was brought to Cooper's attention of Gen. Kerr's affiliation with the Clinton campaign. Another interesting question here, did General Kerr prepare his own question in advance and submit it as some others did or did he video tape his question in Florida? So many questions about CNN and their backroom, behind the scenes and planned out schemes....will we ever know a fraction of it.
CALLER: And put 'em up on YouTube. YouTube was going to have... They brought down six of us, and there was two Obama people, there was a Kucinich guy, which I thought was kind of strange to have those people there.
RUSH: A Kucinich guy at the Republican debate?
CALLER: Yes, right, and he's a prominent Democrat. He works for Kucinich. He actually works for Kucinich doing videos for Kucinich. He brought his camera that Kucinich gave him to do the videos.
RUSH: (laughter) It's not funny, but I can't help laughing about it.
CALLER: Right. Well, wait 'til you hear this. So we all get there, and I meet General Kerr, and as they're taking us on a tour, Anderson Cooper comes out to give us all that talk and he sees --RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Gave you a tour of what, the studio?
CALLER: Yeah, the truck outside the event, you know, where they --RUSH: Oh, yeah.CALLER: -- do all the goodies.RUSH: Propagandizing?
CALLER: Right. And so here we all come up there, and Anderson Cooper comes out, and he immediately recognizes the general. He says, "Oh, General Kerr. I'm glad you're here." He didn't recognize any of the rest of us, but he recognized him real easy.RUSH: He did, eh?CALLER: Absolutely.RUSH: Cooper recognized Kerr?CALLER: Absolutely.
RUSH: Well, he's been on CNN. We found it. He was on CNN back in 2003, and I think it might have been Anderson Cooper's show.
CALLER: I'm not sure of that, but, yeah, I saw that on the FreeRepublic.com and they had the complete transcript. But then they took us into the little bus, and as I'm going up into the bus -- and I have this on video, and you can see it on YouTube. I had this on video. I'm going into the bus, and you can hear the people on the bus saying, "Oh, welcome, General." They immediately recognized the general.
RUSH: Who was on the bus? All of you that were flown in?CALLER: Some of us that were taken up there, and all the people who worked for CNN who are doing behind the scenes stuff in the little office. It's their headquarters, like the NFL has their headquarters outside the stadium.
RUSH: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.CALLER: They gave us a little speech. I got part of that, you can see that on YouTube.RUSH: Hey, General, good to see you again -- and they claim they didn't know anything about the guy!

Venezuelans Vote No, Chavez Big Loser?
Chavez Loses, and the "NO"s WIN!! Now CHAVEZ, SHUT-UP!!!!
A stinging defeat says the AP
CARACAS, Venezuela - President Hugo Chavez suffered a stinging defeat in a vote on constitutional changes that would have let him run for re-election indefinitely, the chief of National Electoral Council said Monday.I am happy for the Venezuelan people....GREAT NEWS the people beat Chavez!!!
Voters defeated the sweeping measures by a vote of 51 percent to 49 percent, Tibisay Lucena said. Turnout was just 56 percent, Lucena said.
Chavez called it a "photo finish" immediately after the results were announced.
The referendum on constitutional changes was a critical test for a leader bent on turning this major U.S. oil provider into a socialist state. An emboldened opposition and clashes during student-led protests in recent weeks had prompted fears of bitter conflict in Chavez's closest race in years.
More Updates - Breitbart: Chavez Loses Constitutional Vote
Early reports are coming in on a tight vote in Venezuela leaning towards the opposition. After the polls closed, the Venezuelans wait with baited breath on official news of the results. I have been keeping up with news from there all day.
Gateway Pundit has an excellent round-up of updates, links, and information.
Miami Herald is covering the election with a special section.
In Miami, Venezuelans lined up as early as dawn to cast their vote.
President Hugo Chavez's controversial constitutional reforms sparked off protests and has split a nation.
Video: On Sunday's vote.......
No one wants Hugo Chavez to become Venezuela's dictator, if he wins that is his intentions.
Daniel at Venezuela News and Views has updates too.
11:20 p.m. No official announcement yet.
