GOP Presidential Candidates Debate in Iowa

The top eight contenders in the race for the nomination of the Republican Party participated in a debate in Iowa last night that became heated at times. I have embedded the entire debate so that you can judge for yourself how you think it went, and have included links at the end to how others think it went. 

The highlight of the debate for me was when Newt Gingrich responded to Chris Wallace and put him in his place (part three at the seven minute mark).
