GOP Aspirants Turning Shy of Each Other

The Republican contenders sniped over social issues but presented a largely united front on broader issues of fighting terrorism and opposing an expanded government role in health care. With the exception of one candidate, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, they all voiced support for the Iraq war, and several expressed optimism at recent reports indicating the American military has made strides in securing parts of the country. Mr. Paul, who is running on an anti-intervention, libertarian message, called for the immediate withdrawal of troops and said America is losing the war.
