I think Tancredo was probably the least reprehensible of the spit & polish lot. I was very refreshed to see a black person damning, in a uniquely positive way, the fact that much of what keeps black people down is self-inflicted (disregard for the importance of the family unit in raising children, complacency regarding the welfare state, etc).
I was glad to hear at least some of the candidates bring some fresh views on how to handle the disproportionate distribution of prison sentences, which is a symptom of the problems Keyes described. Paul called for the War on Drugs to be abolished, which was bold and got applause far outside his cheering section.
Philosophically, I'd love to see Paul elected. Based on what I saw last night, the happy medium between Paul, and what we have today, is probably Tancredo.
